  1. Upgraded Harvey Field House – New viewing platform and outdoor dining area.
  2. Terraced seating – Low walls terraced into grass slopes
  3. Walk of Fame – Feature path with public art / interpretation of great sporting people and moments from local clubs. Located on top of an elevated mound at the same level as the ground floor of the multi-purpose building, it provides greater separation and spectator viewing opportunities.
