Point Cook’s Webster Street Reserve was officially opened on Friday, July 5. Face painting and food trucks were among the attractions at the opening of the $15.9 reserve which was completed earlier this year.

The new reserve features two pavilions, both of which contain change rooms, social spaces, storage, kitchens and umpire rooms. Outside there are five new sporting fields, seven tennis courts, one multi-use court, cricket nets and a car park with landscaping. West Point Soccer Club and Point Cook Tennis Club are two of the sporting organisations who will call the reserve home and representatives from both spoke at the opening ceremony, along with Wyndham council chief executive Stephen Wall and deputy mayor Josh Gilligan. Point Cook MP Mathew Hilakari spoke on behalf of the state government, which contributed $800,000 to the construction of the two pavilions through its Local Sports Infrastructure Fund.
