The Les Reardon Reserve and Community Hall are available for hire by local residents for recreation, functions and meetings. Whilst many local community groups use these facilities regularly, specifically being a Bywong residents is not a perquisite for hiring the hall for a function, meeting, workshop, training course etc…
The hall has a fully equipped kitchen and there is ample parking at the rear of the building. The capacity of the Hall is around 50–70 for seated dinners and meetings and approximately 75–100 for standing functions.
The hall has a storeroom with tables and chairs as well as toilets located inside the building and two toilets located externally, one of which is easily accessible by wheelchair.
There is a BBQ externally provided by the Bywong Community Association for hall hirers to use, the hirer only needs to provide their own gas.
The adjacent playground is a fantastic addition to the facility and has already proven popular for primary aged birthday parties. The facility is not hired out for teenage parties, in particular 18th and 21st.
Use of the dressage arena for riding instruction, located adjacent to the Hall, may be arranged via the Geary’s Gap Pony Club. The community arena is available for anyone to use without booking or fee, this is located away from the Hall, to the South East.
Camping and erection of tents is not permitted on the grassed areas.
The hiring of the Hall is done through the Les Reardon Reserve Facility Management s.355 Committee. The Bywong Community Inc kindly hosts the hall and Reserve hiring information for them.
The Committee has authority to undertake the care, control and management of Council’s facility, its functions and its assets. The Committee controls hiring, and can accept or refuse hire requests subject to the conditions in the Hire Agreement.
