About the Project

In June 2021, Bass Coast Shire Council acquired the land adjoining 'Hilton Chadwick Reserve'. The land was purchased with the intent of developing a recreation precinct that will meet the growing population of Phillip Island and surrounds.

Development of the Cowes Recreation Reserve Master Plan forms part of Councils 2022 operating projects. The Master Plan will be designed to incorporate the future needs of sporting, recreation facilities and public open spaces on the corner of Ventnor Road and Phillip Island Road, Cowes known as ‘Hilton Chadwick Reserve’ and the adjoining site. The aim of the master plan is to provide Phillip Island and surrounds with the essential recreation and aquatics facility to improve the health and wellbeing of the local community and visitors.

Simon Leisure Consulting has been appointed as the consultant to develop the Cowes Recreation Reserve Master Plan.
