The community will soon be able to play a game of basketball, cricket, tennis, netball, lacrosse and ping pong at Rosalie Park as a new mix-use sporting area takes shape.
The City’s new community space, which includes a garden alongside a number of courts and facilities for different sports, was part of the fast tracked capital works program to help stimulate the local economy after the COVID-19 pandemic.
The facility was informed by community consultation which was overwhelmingly positive; some minor changes were made to the plans based on feedback received. Thank you to everyone who submitted feedback on the facility.
The new mix-use sporting area is expected to be ready for action around August. It will be taking the place of the old cricket nets and scoreboard at Rosalie Park.
The new area will include:
- tennis hit-up wall and lacrosse goal marking
- netball and basketball hardcourt
- two cricket nets
- community garden/orchard
- park benches
- outdoor ping pong table
- space for future exercise equipment.
