For a number of years, the Ellerslie Football and Cricket Clubs respectively, through the umbrella organization of the Ellerslie Sports Club Inc, have been in a progressive redevelopment of Michaels Ave Reserve. With Stage 1 (the artificial playing surfaces) and Stage 2 (the Lower Field resurfacing and floodlighting) now completed by Auckland Council, the increased field capacity generated by this ratepayer funded capital investment always envisaged the need for the replacement of the outdated, and inadequate sizing of the existing ablutions block, in order to cater for increased patronage of the fields by both male and female members.
In addition, this third stage also anticipated the relocation of the current clubrooms from the YMCA complex onto the top of the proposed new amenities level, in order to form a more visible “hub” and focal point for the delivery of future Football and Cricket activities , as well as providing opportunities for access to the meeting facilities by the wider community.
