A $400,000 amenities building equipped with team and referee change rooms and inside and outside lighting is on the way for Tarlington Reserve in Bonnyrigg.

The upgrade, which is expected to be completed in August, will also include showers and toilets (including an accessible toilet), canteen, store rooms and a back-to-base alarm

The work is being funded from a voluntary planning agreement negotiated with Housing NSW and its Bonnyrigg Living Community project with Fairfield Council providing in-house expertise to manage its delivery.

Fairfield mayor Frank Carbone said council has budgeted to invest $21.3 million over the next four years to build and renew sporting amenity buildings across the city.

"Local sporting clubs, as well as residents and families who want to run or kick a ball, will be able enjoy the new amenities, thanks to work that will be undertaken by Fairfield Council," he said.

"We want local families to continue to get out and get active, while also attracting local sporting clubs to call Tarlington Reserve home."

In the last year council has upgraded facilities at Makepeace Oval in Fairfield, Rosford Reserve and Smithfield Park in Smithfield, Fairfield Baseball Park, St Johns Park sportsground, Bosnjak Oval in Edensor Park and Knight Park in Yennora.

"The Tarlington Reserve works are yet another example of our commitment to building Fairfield city's reputation as a great place to live, play, work, and raise a family," Mr Carbone said.
