The Bakers park project commenced in November 2019, and works to date include resurfacing and extending the existing car park, replacement of existing footpaths, new perimeter fencing, re-constructing the existing tennis courts and lining, new tennis court fencing and drainage.
A new Pavilion building is to be constructed and will include a new kiosk, two changing rooms, two referee changing rooms, two unisex toilets, an accessible toilet, plant room, and football store.
