Construction of the new change rooms at Harrow and District Recreation Reserve is about to begin, and will take place without disrupting the football and netball teams' seasons.
West Wimmera Shire Council chief executive David Leahy said construction would begin at the end of April.
"The finite program is yet to be finalised, but we expect construction to take approximately eight months" he said.
"The existing change rooms will still be available to sports teams across winter. Workers will be working five days a week but not on Saturdays."
In March, council awarded the $1.22 million tender for the upgrades to Hamilton-based construction company Ultrabuild.
Mr Leahy said the group was selected from a field of several applicants based on its ability to start at a suitable time and deliver within a reasonable timeframe.
Last year, Western Victoria MP Jaala Pulford announced $1 million in state government funding for the project.
Once completed, the new change rooms will boast office spaces, public toilets with baby change facilities, first aid rooms, undercover viewing areas and additional space out of the weather for families on cold and wet days.
The change room build is the first part of a three-stage project. Stages two and three involve a new footpath, redeveloping the current change rooms into storage and gym, a lighting upgrade to the netball and tennis courts and a new playspace.
A spokeswoman for West Wimmera Shire Council said funding was still being sourced for stage three of the project.
