Dunlop Pavilion redevelopment

Construction of an accessible bridge is proposed at Darling Park next to the Dunlop Pavilion, linking the DW Lucas oval and the carpark.

The design includes a concrete walkway leading to a pedestrian bridge that spans the undulating landscape. The bridge will meet the existing pavilion terrace and viewing area.

During the proposed construction the work site will be fenced off for public safety. Access to the Dunlop Pavilion and DW Lucas oval will not be impeded and will remain open at all times.

The area surrounding the walkway and pedestrian bridge will be landscaped once the building work is complete.
