Local tennis players of all ages gathered to have
a hit on the new acrylic coated surfaces and enjoy
one of the region's finest tennis facilities at the
official opening at the Buninyong Tennis Centre.
The $554,000 project was funded by the City
of Ballarat, the Buninyong and District Tennis
Association and Tennis Australia.
A New Pavilion
A new pavilion is also underway at the
Buninyong Tennis Precinct.
It will house a new social and meeting area,
male and female change rooms, a universal
access toilet and shower, kiosk, administration
office, and storage space.
At a cost of $380,000, the pavilion is also a joint
project of the City of Ballarat, the Buninyong and
District Tennis Association and Tennis Australia.
The project is at the framing stage with the
slab and structural steel components complete.
Work has now begun on plumbing.
The pavilion is due to be completed in June.
New Tennis Facilities
Eight new tennis courts and lighting were open for play at the
Buninyong Tennis Centre in March.
Bakery Hill will be given a fresh new look in
the coming months.
The $1.1 million upgrade includes:
• alfresco dining areas
• street furniture
• trees and grassed areas
• ornamental lighting
The existing car park and rotunda will be
relocated to make way for an open square
grassed area which will create a visual line
of sight from Bakery Hill through to the Sturt
The existing car parking in this precinct will be
relocated to the lower section of Little Bridge
Street and an additional three car parking
spaces will be developed.
The Bakery Hill project, a key outcome of
Ballarat's CBD Strategy, will be constructed
by local contractor W V Pelchen Pty Ltd. It is
expected to be completed in June.
A Fresh Look
for Bakery Hill
Bakery Hill rotunda has
a new home
The Bakery Hill rotunda will be moved to its new
home at Kirk's Reservoir in May.
Central Highlands Water will manage the
removal and relocation of the rotunda to its new
surrounds. The rotunda will be available for
community use and is expected to be a popular
facility for the increasing number of wedding
bookings in the reservoir.
In the article titled "New Street Names with an
Historic Heart" (page 7, MyBallarat February
2012), it was incorrectly stated that the Ballarat
Avenue of Honour commemorates 1,194
servicemen and women. There are 3,800
servicemen and women honoured in the Avenue.
The vast majority of the approximately 200
street names for Ballarat's new suburb of Lucas
will be selected from the 743 local servicemen
who lost their lives in World War One.
