The City of Stonnington is upgrading the floodlighting at Orrong Romanis Reserve. The number of light poles will reduce from eight to six, and the lights will be upgraded to energy efficient LED. The improved lighting will comply to the standard required for rugby training and competition, and be suitable community recreation activities.

The Orrong Romanis Reserve floodlighting is being redeveloped by the City of Stonnington in partnership with the Victorian Government. This $671,000 project is jointly funded by the Victorian Government and City of Stonnington.
