Construction work at Lionel Watts Reserve enters final phase

By Northern Beaches Council
Posted: 13 Feb 2021
Work has begun on the showground amenities, being the final leg of the Glen Street Open Space Masterplan upgrade.

The work involves extensions to the northern section of the Eastern Amenities (Rugby League) building to house additional storage for various sports users. An additional canteen is to be built that looks over the showgrounds (the existing canteen overlooking the rugby league field is to remain) and a first floor lift is to be installed. There will be enhanced views of the Rugby League sportsground and showground with the construction of a large, covered viewing platform.

Mayor Michael Regan said the extensions will double the floor space of the building adding much needed storage for netball and athletics clubs, and the Frenchs Forest Agricultural and Horticultural Society. 

“After years of planning, community consultation and construction, the last major building project of the Glen Street Open Space Masterplan is underway.

“Council thanks the sporting clubs involved, and the whole community for their time and input into the extensive community consultation. The passion and interest of the community has enabled Council to deliver high quality facilities that will be enjoyed by a large number of residents for years to come.”

Work is expected to finish in Spring 2021.

This project is proudly funded by the NSW Government in association with Northern Beaches Council.

The Building will still be accessible during the upcoming rugby league season. The male toilets will be shut and temporary ones have been installed. 

Works completed under the Glen Street Open Space Masterplan included a major upgrade of the Frenchs Forest showground, the redevelopment of the Lionel Watts Reserve, which encompassed a new inclusive playground, the upgrade of the Western amenities, the laying of synthetic turf surfaces on three fields in the Lionel Watts sportsground, new cricket nets and a skate park.
