Future use of Frank Smith Park for organised sport

Update

Thank you to the many people who provided feedback.

We’ll share the outcome of the consultation with you after the September Council meeting.

Background

Frank Smith Park at Coromandel Valley is located in the City of Onkaparinga and forms part of the boundary with City of Mitcham and is well used by the local community. It is currently used for junior soccer on Saturday mornings in the winter months, and starting this year this will be extended to Sundays.

On 15th February 2022, the City of Onkaparinga gave in-principle support for Frank Smith Park to be used for organised sport, in order to allow stakeholders to seek external funding for playing surface upgrades.

To inform our ongoing planning for sport in this district, we believe it is important to ask the surrounding community for its view on the potential future increased use of the turf playing space at Frank Smith Park for organised sport.

Understanding and balancing the needs of all users is an important consideration when planning for future use of our open space and sports facilities.
