About the revitalisation

The Glenferrie Oval precinct, which includes the Michael Tuck stand, is one of Boroondara's most loved sporting and community facilities.

We are revitalising this heritage-listed site for the community to enjoy now and into the future.

Community consultation

We completed 2 stages of community consultation for this project.

Stage 1

The first stage ran from April to May 2023. After we demolished the Ferguson Stand, there was an opportunity to develop the new open space. We asked our community for feedback on the draft landscape plan for the new open space. We used the feedback from this stage to develop the final landscape design.

Find out more about the stage 1 consultation.

Stage 2

The second stage of consultation ran from August to September 2023. We asked our community for feedback on the draft Vision and Design Brief for the refurbishment of Michael Tuck Stand and Glenferrie Oval.

On 11 December 2023, Council adopted a report on the community feedback and the final Vision and Design Brief.

Next steps

We are currently consulting with local community sports clubs, Cricket Victoria and AFL Victoria to decide on a women’s hub model or tenant model. This will inform the programming and use of the ground for Australian Rules football and junior cricket.

We will also invite expressions of interest in mid-2024 to decide community tenants for the shared spaces within the Michael Tuck Stand.
