Wadsworth Field - Baseball Practice Facilities Upgrade

The City of Stonnington is seeking community feedback in relation to the proposed upgrade of baseball practice facilities at Wadsworth Field – Sir Zelman Cowan Park, Kooyong. The existing baseball practice facilities at Wadsworth Field are in poor condition, a risk to pedestrian safety and need to be replaced.

Council has prepared a Draft Concept Plan and 3D artist impressions to assist residents and sports club users in providing feedback regarding the upgrade of the baseball practice facilities.

The proposed upgrade will enclose the current baseball training area and will include:

  • Two enclosed batting cages with lighting;
  • Consolidated pitching and hitting mounds;
  • Improved player, pedestrian and spectator safety;
  • Incorporated storage within the design to consolidate equipment and ease game day logistics; and
  • Crushed rock and concrete bases for the cage and bullpen.

Pedestrian safety and improving OH&S in relation to game day movement of equipment makes the revised layout much safer for park users and baseball players alike.

Council is committed to developing quality sport and recreation facilities that support casual sport and recreation opportunities to enhance health, wellbeing and social inclusion as identified under Council’s Recreation Strategy 2014 – 2024.

The Survey will be available from Monday 14 August to Sunday 3 September.
