The successful inclusion of Waverley Park football stadium on the Victorian Heritage Register originated with a grassroots community movement and one set of expectations. The outcome demonstrates that Waverly is the landmark case that informed how judgements about the cultural heritage values of 20th century heritage places have been regarded since . The manner in which the changes on site have addressed heritage values, and the broader outcomes for places with sporting heritage values will be explored.
