The premier AFL facility in Gippsland.

The Project

The premier AFL facility in Gippsland.

Base of AFL under 18 TAC team the Gippsland Power, Morwell Recreation Reserve is also the home venue of the Morwell Football Netball Club, Morwell Cricket Club and the Morwell Croquet Club. Morwell Recreation Reserve has in the past hosted AFL pre-season matches. Part of the $9 million upgrades to Morwell Recreation Reserve, the synthetic oval sits on the old caravan site on the western side of the reserve.

Our Task

PEAKURBAN was engaged by Latrobe City Council to complete the design and documentation for the Synthetic AFL Oval. This included the provision of linemarking for Soccer and Sports Lighting to be installed over the disused Caravan Park. The synthetic oval is to host winter training as well as AFLX and AFL9s. The oval is to be used as the Centre of Excellence for Gippsland Power and adjoining Morwell Football Clubs. Our task included:

  • Bulk Earthworks
  • Drainage
  • Diversion of overland flows.
  • Synthetic playing surface with 3m runoff around perimeter.
  • Fencing around perimeter.
  • Pedestrian paths and viewing mounds.
  • Retaining walls.
