Baldivis Sports Complex

  • Major infrastructure projects
  • Construction

Project summary

A district open space will be delivered in Baldivis to provide for sports club training and competition, as well as community recreation.

Baldivis is experiencing rapid growth, particularly in the number of young families living in the area. This creates a high demand for sport and recreation facilities to play an important role in providing opportunities for social interaction and skill building, and creating stronger, safer and more inclusive communities.

The City purchased a 20 hectare site on Eighty Road to develop the Baldivis Sports Complex (BSC), which will provide for sports club training and competition, as well as passive sport and recreation for the wider community.

Work on the City’s latest major infrastructure project is underway. Civil engineering works at the BSC site started in March 2020 and stage one is on track for completion in mid 2022. 

The BSC on Eighty Road is a key project that will meet a significant shortage of active reserve space in Baldivis for present and future sporting groups. 

The first stage of the project will deliver a district level pavilion and multiple playing ovals. In the long term, once all stages are complete, the BDSC will provide about eight hectares of open space, two pavilions, 18 outdoor hardcourts, a nature playground, youth space and an indoor recreation centre.

If you would like further information on the project, you can contact the City on 9528 0333, email bdsc@rockingham.wa.gov.au or complete an online enquiry

Civil works

Civil works have been completed including all site earthworks, the installation of utility services, the completion of the dual use perimeter path, several internal roads and car parks, along with preparation of the building pads.

Site fencing

The perimeter site fencing has been completed along with the fencing to the conservation area. The fencing to the conservation area will protect the thousands of native tube stock planted over the past year.    

Playing fields

The irrigation installed has been designed to enable effective and efficient watering of the site through a process known as hydro-zoning. Using this method the City is able to save water while maintaining playing surfaces to a high standard.

In total, eight hectares of turf was laid in February 2021. 

Stage 1 landscaping 

Stage 1 landscaping works have been completed which includes Eighty Road verge landscaping, northern and south west oval retaining wall, the northern boundry landscaping, and turf infill to the primary oval. 

Southern car park 

Works for the southern car park are now complete. This car park includes around 200 parking bays. 

Planned facilities

Playing fields and pavilion

Due to the need for active open space in the Baldivis area, the first part of the project will provide eight hectares of active open space.

A pavilion will be built between the two primary fields that includes: 

  • changerooms for players and umpires
  • first aid
  • toilets
  • storage
  • social space. 

District pavilion

Indoor sports complex

The indoor sports complex will include:

  • four indoor courts
  • multi-purpose community spaces
  • cafe.​​

Indoor Recreation Centre

Outdoor recreation space

The Baldivis Outdoor Recreation Space will include a nature play space and an outdoor recreation space located adjacent to the indoor sports complex.

We have engaged Emerge Associates for the community consultation and design of this Baldivis Outdoor Recreation Space. Emerge has now developed a draft plan which we are currently seeking community feedback on

Background

Site layout

The Baldivis District Sporting Complex Master Plan is the blueprint for the development.  The plan shows the location of all the facilities that will be on the site. 

The Draft BDSC Master Plan was advertised during October 2018, including a community information session held at Mary Davies Library and Community Centre on Tuesday 16 October 2018. This advertising period gave the community an opportunity to tell us what they thought of the layout.

Following a review of public comment submissions, the final BDSC Master Plan was endorsed by Council on 18 December 2018.

The site layout below shows the playing fields and courts and indoor and outdoor recreational spaces. There will be 400+ parking bays available for use. This includes ACROD, bus and loading bays. There will also be overflow parking provided on site as pictured in the layout. 

A shared pathway has recently been improved to encourage pedestrians and bicycles to walk or ride the track around the perimeter of the facility once opened for use.
