Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Progress on delivering the Stage 1 works of the Aldinga Sports Park Master Plan is well underway with the completion of netball court upgrades and new cricket nets. In October 2022 the main civil and service upgrades to the Sports Park will commence.

The Masterplan proposed the relocation of the Aldinga Sports Park (ASP) equestrian facilities to enable the construction of a shared soccer/hockey building and a new soccer pitch adjacent the Aldinga Payinthi School. An alternative site for the relocation of the Aldinga equestrian facilities has been found at Bowering Hill Road, Aldinga, and construction of their new facilities will commence soon.

Construction of new hockey and soccer buildings will commence following the completion of designs in 2023.

The ASP, located adjacent to the Aldinga township, is a Regional Active Park currently home to nine clubs including bowling, croquet, netball, football, cricket, soccer, hockey and equestrian (relocating in 2023).

The ASP Master Plan sets a long-term vision for the Park with staged development to occur over the next 10+ years. A plan for stage 1 works and the following implementation stages are found in the Executive Summary Report. More detail is also available in the Final Master Plan Report.

The Master Plan was prepared to guide the future development of sports and recreation facilities in response to current and projected growth in population and sport participation levels in the Aldinga region.

The construction of the new Aldinga Payinthi College adjacent to the Sports Park presented an opportunity to combine sports and recreation facilities to create a large sports and community hub catering to the broader southern region.

The Master Plan was developed to ensure new sports park facilities are combined with the school facilities and consider the further growth of the region. Future stages of the ASP upgrades will be implemented as set out in the ASP Master Plan, following the completion of Stage 1 works in 2023.

    Recently we consulted on the removal of regulated and significant trees at the Aldinga Sports Park. The removal of these trees is required to complete the planned civil works on the western side of the park, including new underground services, an upgraded access road, formalised car parking, new pedestrian pathways and street lighting.

    Following public consultation, a report was submitted to Council where it was approved to progress to the next stage of development approval to remove the trees. Council also moved to replace the trees with eight advanced trees at the Aldinga Sports Park.
