The North Melbourne Recreation Reserve on Arden Street is a sporting ground distinguished by its long-standing association with the North Melbourne Football Club. It has served as the home of North Melbourne for more than 125 years and is now home to the AFLW and VFL Clubs.
This oval is the first football ground to have an LED lighting upgrade. Undertaken by Erbas, the upgrade includes new poles and Philips OptiVision GEN3 luminaires to light the ground to 300lux. The OptiVision GEN3 is an innovative floodlight allowing players to achieve their true potential from day to night. With its wide range of optics, it ensures maximum efficiency and precise light distribution to minimise light spill, making it the ideal choice for a sports ground sitting within a residential area.
