Project Summary/background

A master plan for the Barclay Street sportsground was endorsed by Council in August 2020. The masterplan identified the opportunity to develop a multi-functional recreation precinct at the Barclay Street sportsground including an all-inclusive play space and skatepark.

This project includes the design and construction of:

  • an all-inclusive play space including accessible play equipment (zip line, carousel, basket swing and accessible ship)
  • a skate park
  • an access road and car park, and
  • parkland.


Council is committed to providing safe and accessible recreational infrastructure and opportunities for the community.

The new multi-functional recreation precinct will be a social place for the community, increasing social cohesion.

Recreational activities have direct benefits in improving physical health and wellbeing, such as increased life expectancy, reduced risk for heart disease and improved mental health.

Recreational infrastructure has great potential to attract new residents to the area, especially young families, combatting some of the challenges faced by an ageing population.
