Glen Huon Reserve remains on track for completion in April, according to the Dardanup Shire Council.

Pads are being laid and the steel structures for the pavilions are planned to be built before Christmas.

Pavilions for both football and softball will feature in the renovated facility, while a third building will be football changerooms.

The council’s engineering and development services director Luke Botica said the project, which had a 35-week build, was still expected to be ready on time.

“The project has been going well and there haven’t been any major issues,” Mr Botica said.

“There were some minor delays with weather affecting soil but the contractor is still working to be completed on time.

“The council set a fairly ambitious timeframe to get this project started and completed and that has probably been a driving factor in getting this built.”

A 220sq m function room will feature in the Eaton Boomers’ 500sq m football pavilion.

Both that and the 450sq m softball pavilion will have semi-commercial kitchens.

The existing playground will also be reconfigured later in the project, with the council applying for extra funds that would aim to upgrade equipment.

An extra 114 parking bays will be created, Mr Botica said, while the council was still discussing possible parking around the football oval’s perimeter for South West Football League games.
