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 was completed in 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 was completed in 2023, which delivered a district level pavilion, multiple playing fields and an indoor recreation centre. The next stage will provide a pavilion, eight outdoor hardcourts (netball, basketball), eight tennis courts, and outdoor recreation space.

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

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.
