    In Stonnington, participation rates across indoor sports is lower than State participation rates, primarily due to the lack of facilities.

    An analysis of potential participation in indoor court sports shows that Stonnington requires at least four additional courts to meet current demand.

    Council has sought a suitable site for an indoor stadium that can accommodate the provision of four courts with car parking, court-side seating, and change room facilities to improve the opportunity for local sports enthusiasts to participate in indoor sports.

    • Landscaping improvements throughout the park.


    Provision of a synthetic sports ground within the park will help to alleviate the overuse of many nearby grounds and provide capacity for increased participation in sport through the addition of new teams, particularly juniors and women.

    Following feedback from the local community and sports clubs, Council adopted the Gardiner Park Concept Plan on 18 July 2016. The redevelopment was put on hold whilst Council considered the future use of the sportsground. On 6 February 2017 Council committed to resuming the project and will proceed with the implementation of the Final Concept Plan during 2017.
