Cowes Recreation Reserve

Cowes Recreation Reserve


The Cowes Recreation Reserve has a football/cricket oval, two netball courts and four tennis courts
as part of the Phillip Island Tennis Club. The cricket pitch is synthetic and there’s another three synthetic pitches in the south-east corner of the reserve where the cricket nets are.

The pavilion has a licensed bar. It has a small kitchen which helps service the canteen that sells hot/cold food, chocolates, lollies and has coffee/tea making facilities. There is some bench seating available in front of the pavilion. Cars can park around the boundary of the main oval.

Four light towers provides enough light on the oval for training purposes. There are no lights for the cricket nets area.

The change rooms and netball complex at Cowes is undergoing renovations. The $1million project will see the existing home and away football change rooms have new showers, toilets, first aid and meeting rooms and an increased area for player changing. Two realigned netball courts will have new lighting that is compliant with Australian standards for training. The Cowes Recreation Reserve is adjacent to the Phillip Island Leisure Centre.
