The Burrumbuttock Recreation Reserve committee is considering options to progress long-standing plans to upgrade their facilities.
A proposed multi-purpose community centre at the grounds would include a large function centre, new kitchen and cool room, changerooms and storage.
Grant applications for the $1.7 million rebuild have so far been unsuccessful.
One option for the group is to seek grants for a 'phase one' build of public toilets, to create much needed facilities with disability access.
However, with $300,000 nominally allocated through council from round three of the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program in October, the group hopes to pursue an all-in-one project.
Recreation reserve committee secretary Janice Whitty and president Ash Lindner took Albury MP Justin Clancy and Greater Hume Council general manager Steve Pinnuck on a tour of the building.
Ms Whitty said without disability access or adequate changeroom facilities for netballers, it was time for Burrumbuttock facilities to get an upgrade.
"Old Army huts were put here and bricked up," she said.
"We put a viewing platform on in 2015.
"We're probably one of the last in the shire that haven't turned it into a functions centre."
Mr Lindner, who is seeking election to Greater Hume Council, said it would be important to upgrade the 50-year-old facilities to become a community hub.
"That would make it a perfect place for the school for staging events," he said.
"The other thing that we're working towards as well, with trying to water the grounds and creating new facilities, is to make this a fire safe place for the community.
"We're working with RFS on that.
"We are very grateful for the support of Greater Hume Shire thus far."
Drought funding of $60,000 enabled council and the committee to drill a bore, however water quality and pump capacity has not been ideal.
Investigations continue into cost-sustainable solutions.
Mr Lindner said the community would continue to be kept in the loop regarding the recreation reserve plans, which will cater for a growing region.
