This page has been developed to keep the community informed of the current works and future development at A.H Capp Reserve and W.H Robinson Reserve.


W.H Robinson Reserve Upgrade

Cricket Nets

Works to upgrade the existing synthetic cricket training nets at WH Robinson Reserve are also planned. Construction is expected to commence in March 2019 (post cricket season) and will take approximately 6 weeks.


A.H Capp Reserve Upgrade

Turf Works

An upgrade to the playing surface at AH Capp Reserve is programmed to commence October 2018.

The surface upgrade will deliver a relevelled playing surface, removing the major low areas mainly located on the western side of the oval.

The works will require this ground to be closed from October to December 2018, essentially for safety reasons. Temporary fencing will be erected adjacent to the existing iron rail fence, including the open section in front of the pavilion for the duration of this project.

It is anticipated the fencing will be removed and the ground re-opened at the end of December 2018.

The following works are programmed:

  • Temporary fence installed
  • Cultivation of low sunken areas
  • De-compaction of the entire playing surface
  • Levelling / major top dressing of oval surface
  • Re-turf bare areas
  • Rejuvenate sub-surface drainage system
  • Grow-in period
  • Final top dress of playing surface with sand
  • Open ground December 2018

    It is with much excitement that we are able to confirm that a new contractor has been awarded to complete the refurbishment and extension of the W.H. Robinson Pavilion.

    For community members who may not be aware, refurbishment and extension of the W.H. Robinson Pavilion commenced early 2018 however the contractor went into liquidation which delayed project completion.

    Darebin City Council have entered into a contract with Sherwood Construction Solutions who have been awarded the contract to complete the W.H. Robinson Reserve Pavilion refurbishment.
