Morton Road Sports and Community Hub

The City of Onkaparinga has been working with the local community, state government, commonwealth government and the Roger Rasheed Sports Foundation (RRSF) to transform Morton Road Reserve in Christie Downs into a sports and recreation hub.

With $1.5M funding contributions from the City of Onkaparinga and State Government and a further $100,000 from the RRSF and $400,000 from the Commonwealth Government we have funding required for an exciting $3.5M first stage of the project which will deliver a great place for play, skate and adventure.

The Sports and Community Hub will deliver a skate park, multi-use tennis/netball courts, junior and youth play spaces, seating, shelters, barbecue facilities, a basketball node, irrigated lawn areas, and toilets.

The Roger Rasheed Sports Foundation provides free sports coaching and mentoring programs for children from disadvantaged backgrounds and needs the right facilities to do this. We are working with the Foundation to look at ways we can fund more facilities that will expand these sports and mentoring programs, so we can reach more children through sport.

CONSTRUCTION UNDERWAY

We are excited to inform you that construction has started for all remaining site elements including the oval, junior and youth play spaces, seating, shelters, barbecue facilities, a basketball node, and lawn areas.

Works will be staged with completion anticipated late 2021.

We will continue to keep the community informed as the construction progresses.

HAVE YOUR SAY ON A NEW NAME FOR MORTON ROAD RESERVE

We've received suggestions for names for the reserve and the community will be invited to vote on a shortlist of names soon.
