Soil testing at Elsternwick Park Oval 4

Written by:

As part of preliminary investigations at Elsternwick Park Oval 4, Council’s contractor will be conducting soil testing on Wednesday 19 February. 

The testing is in preparation for reconstruction of the sportsground as endorsed by Council in September 2018.

As outlined in the Council decision Oval 4 will be prepared for the purposes of winter sport including sportsground reconstruction incorporating improved drainage, irrigation, synthetic cricket wicket and granitic sand oval perimeter path.

Sportsground lighting will be installed on Oval 4 to meet Australian Standards for junior and senior Australian Rules football training.

A basic, female-friendly sportsground pavilion will be constructed to support the use of Oval 4.
