Dubbo Regional Council is pleased to announce that Stage One (1) of the Victoria Park redevelopment has now been completed at Victoria No 2 & 3 ovals.

Mayor of the Dubbo Region Ben Shields said the project had its challenges but he is happy with the result.

“This project had a lot of ups and downs. The project was difficult due to ground conditions, weather and scheduling issues but the end result is two very aesthetically pleasing, functional sporting grounds that the community should be proud of,” said Councillor Shields.

Stage One of the Victoria Park redevelopment project included:

  • The planting of 22 trees within the car park and surrounds.

    Super Advanced Quercus autissima – Sawtooth Oak (exotic deciduous)

    Advanced Geijera parvifolia – Wilga (local endemic species)

  • Installation of 800 meters of white picket fencing around Victoria 2 and 3 ovals

  • New turf laid between Victoria Park 2 and 3 ovals

  • Installation of paving between Victoria Park 2 and 3 ovals

Stage one of the Victoria Park redevelopment was made possible due Stronger Communities Grant Funding from the NSW Government.

Member for Dubbo Troy Grant said the Victoria Park precinct has taken on a new feel since the work had been completed.

“I have driven past and seen some cricket being played at those grounds, and they now look like your traditional old cricket fields,” Mr Grant said.

“The white picket fencing has added a real dimension to the facility, the car parking has opened things up, and when the project gets completed with the works to No.1 Oval it will become one of the premier sporting precincts in regional NSW.

“The NSW Government is proud fund projects that really enhance the city’s recreational facilities and I congratulate the staff of Dubbo Regional Council for the work they have done in Stage 1 of the redevelopment.”
