The old pavilion in Goddington Park is set for renovation after a funding boost was awarded to Orpington Football Club.
A grant of £25,800 was awarded by The Veolia Environmental Trust, which will go towards the creation of six football pitches, a new cricket square and the pavilion.
Goddington Park has not been used for organised sport in more than three years, but this £80,000 project aims to create a community hub available to residents all year.
Plans for the pavilion include six newly-decorated changing rooms, a new kitchen, replaced showers and improved security to deter vandals.
Paul Wade, secretary of Orpington FC, said: “The new facilities will encourage members of the community to be active and healthy, and will also be a place where people can socialise.”
