Alpine Events Park

The $3.74million Alpine Events Park, for outdoor events, will be built at Pioneer Park, Bright. The Park will attract larger scale national and international events to the region. Thirty-five jobs will be created during the three-year design and construction period. The Park will create about 70 new jobs and $16.5 million in direct expenditure in the Alpine Shire every year.

Project Update - September 2018

COMPLETED WORKS
The following works have been completed:
• Multi-purpose Facility - This building replaces the old pavilion adjacent to the grandstand and is now largely complete. The lower level change rooms were completed for use in April 2018. Council would like to thank local builder, Barton Street Developments, for completing this facility to a very high standard. Council is hoping to hold an opening event for the facility in coming weeks, however we are currently awaiting approval to the date for this event from the federal funding department.

INCOMPLETE WORKS
The entire project is due for completion in mid-2019 and the following works are yet to be completed:
• Landscape works – the landscape works around the multi-purpose facility will be implemented in the coming months.
• Hero Trail extension and Coronation Avenue crossing – The Hero Trail will be realigned and cross beneath Coronation Avenue at Dougherty’s Bridge. These works will commence on site this September and be completed by early November 2018.
• Path Connection - A new path connection will link the end of the Hero Trail with the new access road. It is anticipated that these works will occur in early 2019.
• Pump Track – A 40 metre long pump track will be constructed within the Rotary Pines area and adjacent to the new access road. It is anticipated that these works will also occur in early 2019.

The development will involve restoration of the heritage-protected grandstand, the demolition of the old pavilion, the expansion of the lower change rooms and a new upper level facility capable of hosting meetings and events.

Construction of the lower level change rooms is scheduled to be completed in time for Easter 2018 and available for use during the football season while works continue on the upper level.
