It's official - Dudley Chesham Oval is about to undergo a major revamp.

Wollondilly councillors voted in favour of a $7.5 million master plan for the popular recreation space in the Oaks at Monday night's council meeting.

Wollondilly deputy mayor Matthew Gould said it was the first step in a positive process.

"It will be really exciting to see this come together," he said.

"We don't have anything like this at the moment.

"The master plan for Wilton is the only thing that comes close so this will be an important regional facility for us."

The existing rugby league football club amenities facility will be demolished and a new multipurpose amenities facility will be built to accommodate the rugby club, a multipurpose community space and a number of community meeting spaces.

The master plan will also include upgrades to the existing skate park, the installation of outdoor exercise equipment and a children's playground, realignment of the cricket nets, a new hard-surface netball court, reconfiguration of the tennis courts and a new tennis hitting wall.

New road access points, an off-leash dog area, an electronic scoreboard, water refill stations and a possible astronomical observatory structure are also proposed for the site. There is no expected timeframe for the delivery of the oval master plan.
