Upgrade to current amenities building
Starting in August 2020, Council will upgrade and refurbish the existing amenities building at Bicentennial Park in Yarra Bay. The works are part of Council’s COVID-19 support program to stimulate the local economy and create jobs.
The new building, which will retain the existing façade, will create a brighter, more attractive space and a new roof line will provide additional natural light and ventilation for the building.
The new building will include:
- new female and male toilets
- new ambulant and accessible toilets
- new showers
- baby change facilities.
Throughout construction, portable toilets will be located nearby. The upgraded building is due to be complete by November 2020.
The building will continue to provide storage space for the Council including Council’s stormwater harvesting treatment plant, and rooms for the La Perouse Aboriginal Land Council for their operational and storage needs.
Bicentennial Park is a coastal reserve bounded by Yarra Road, Kooringai Avenue and Baragoola Avenue, Phillip Bay
The Coastal Walkway from La Perouse runs through this reserve providing views out over Botany Bay. The historic Chinese Market Gardens and Eastern Suburbs Memorial Park is located adjacent to the reserve.
Yarra Bay Beach and Yarra Bay Sailing Club are accessed through Bicentennial Park. The reserve is normally a quieter option than La Perouse, Frechmans Bay or Congwong Beach.There is a good amount of nearby parking available.
