Aldinga Sports Park Master Plan is approved!

We are pleased to announce that the final Aldinga Sports Park Master Plan was approved by the Strategic Directions Committee on Tuesday 3 February 2021.

This is a significant milestone that provides confidence in the continued roll-out of the Aldinga Sports Park Stage 1 upgrades currently underway and planned.

The master plan also confirms the position of the new soccer facilities and relocation of equestrian. The preferred equestrian relocation site at Wilfred Taylor Reserve was found to be unsuitable for the three equine clubs. Investigations into alternative sites is continuing, with the Southern Vales Dressage and Aldinga Bay Riding clubs closely involved in the process.

  • A construction tender will be released in the coming weeks

Civil and Services Upgrades

  • We are working through the civil, services, soccer pitch and sports lighting detailed designs

BACKGROUND

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

An Aldinga Sports Park draft Master Plan has been prepared to guide the future development of sport and recreation facilities in response to current and projected growth in population and sport participation levels in the Aldinga region.

The draft Master Plan sets a long-term vision for the Park with staged development to occur over the next 15+ years. The staged implementation of the Master Plan will start with Stage 1 works in 2020/21. A plan for stage 1 works and the following implementation stages are found in the draft Executive Summary Report. More detail is also available in the draft Master Plan Report draft Master Plan Report.

Key moves proposed in the draft Master Plan includes:

  • Development of facilities which will support the successful integration of the Aldinga School and Aldinga Sports Park
  • Investment in buildings, playing surfaces and supporting infrastructure for organised sport
  • A regional play space and satellite skate facility
  • Relocation of the Aldinga Soldiers War Memorial to the Aldinga Sports Park
  • Relocation of the equestrian facilities from Aldinga.

The construction of the new Birth to Year 12 Aldinga School adjacent the Sports Park presents a unique opportunity to integrate planning of sports and recreation facilities to create a large sports and community hub to cater for the broader southern region. Council has secured a shared-use agreement with new Aldinga School to allow community use of two soccer pitches, the senior oval, and two indoor courts once the school is opened.

The Master Plan has been developed to ensure that new sport park facilities are integrated with the school facilities and consider the further growth of the region.
