Work is progressing well!

Since December construction has focused on completing the shaping of the oval and installing the mega-flow drainage and topsoil. This has been a big job and we thank the community for their patience and support during this busy construction period.

The playground equipment has been installed and the turf installation is almost complete and the oval is starting to look like a useable space again!

In the next few weeks we will be installing the fence, concrete footpaths and exposed aggregate path around the playground, shaping the mound and painting the toilet block.

We are getting close to completion of the project with handover in May 2024.

Background information

Construction on the much-awaited Knox Park Multi-use Sports Park upgrade commenced in mid-August 2023.

With the support of Katrine Hildyard Member for Reynell, the state government is providing $1.1M funding towards this project.

Since our last update on the Council approved Multi-use Sports Park concept plan, we have completed the detailed design and construction procurement process, with contractor BluBuilt being awarded the contract for construction.

Work will consist of the following:

  • Irrigated oval with 400m athletics track.
  • Athletics throw and jump facilities.
  • Playground upgrade.
  • Shelter with barbeque and seating.
  • Priority site connecting footpath.
  • Priority landscaping and tree planting.
  • Fencing around the oval.
  • Storage shed.
  • Public toilet with disability access.
  • Services connections including stormwater, water and electricity.

Work will predominantly be undertaken between 7am and 5pm weekdays. For safety reasons, the construction site will be fenced throughout the entire construction period. BluBuilt will keep as much of the reserve open to the public as possible when it is safe to do so.
