  • Change rooms
  • Resurfaced velodrome
  • Spectator viewing mound
  • Cricket nets

The Edwardstown World War One honour board has also been installed in the clubrooms. Activities will run from 11am to 2pm and include guided tours, come and try sports, a free sausage sizzle, and a performance by Marion City Band.
