But 11,000 reasons to look forward to summer

After such a busy winter season, our sports fields required a bit of R&R. You will notice our fields have taken a well-rested break with new turf laid - 11,000 sqm of new turf, to be exact.

Every year over $1 million is invested into maintaining sports fields which includes the annual sports field renovation program.

This summer - come play!

This summer is an exciting time with three of our fields in Moore Park West returning to the community after being offline for Light Rail works.
The summer season is now in full swing. Check out this video and see why we are Australia’s largest community sporting precinct….
