Ernest Johnson Reserve

The City commenced construction works for the $10.5 million Ernest Johnson (EJ) Reserve redevelopment in February 2017.

EJ Reserve is one of the most wellknown and popular playing fields in the City. The Reserve’s six associated buildings are being redeveloped to better accommodate the needs of relevant sporting clubs, community groups, the local community and the City.

Works will be completed in two stages, with the first stage including construction of new clubrooms, parking facilities and associated infrastructure. Works completed to date include; earthworks, installation of new sewer lines and storm water pits, detailed excavation and pouring of the concrete pad and footings. These works are on schedule for completion at the end of 2017.

The second stage of the project will include civil works such as demolition of existing buildings, oval works, and construction of sports facilities, playgrounds and social areas.

Stage 2 is expected to commence early in 2018 with completion scheduled for June 2018.
