Project summary

We are upgrading the Koorana Reserve playing fields and clubroom to provide more sporting opportunities for people in the Coastal Central Subdistrict.

Our Coastal Central Sporting Infrastructure Assessment identified that Koorana Reserve had the potential to offer more sporting activities, and recommended that the City produce a master plan.

The construction contract for the Koorana Reserve Master Plan was awarded to local company Shelford Constructions Pty Ltd at the January 2021 Ordinary Meeting of Council. The contract includes the following works:

  • all site civil works including clearing of the south/east section of the reserve to create two new soccer fields and one cricket oval; 
  • expansion of the cricket practice nets, new shade structures, pathways and a drinking fountain;
  • replacement of the existing centre cricket wicket;
  • refurbishment and expansion of the existing clubrooms;
  • removal of existing floodlighting and installation of new floodlighting to accommodate training and competition lighting levels for soccer;
  • construction of a new car park off of Royal Palm Drive; and,
  • removal and replacement of existing bores and reticulation, plus new reticulation infrastructure to support the new pitches and ovals.

Construction started on 6 April 2021.
