Goolwa Oval Recreation Precinct

The Project

The Goolwa Oval Recreation Precinct Master Plan’s vision is to provide a fit for purpose and adaptable sporting and community precinct in the heart of Goolwa.

Once completed, the Goolwa and wider Alexandrina community will have new netball and tennis courts and cricket training facilities as well as improved car parking, road and pedestrian links and open space with barbecues and seating.  It will also allow for the construction of a new comprehensive multi-purpose community sporting facility for user groups.

Significant Federal and State Government funding, combined with Council's contribution, has enabled Stage One of the multi-stage Recreation Precinct project to be completed in February 2022.

The Federal Government will contributed $5 million towards the upgrade of the Goolwa Oval Recreation Precinct, and the State Government's funding of $800,000 is from the State Government’s (Round 2) Grassroots Football, Cricket and Netball Facility Program.

Stage One is the new multi-purpose clubrooms featuring a new two-storey building including change rooms, first aid rooms, umpire spaces, toilets, social spaces, canteen, kitchen, bar, multiple storage areas and optimum viewing for its many spectators. The building incorporates important environmental elements including solar panels, rainwater storage and recycled materials.

The upgrade has been a long sought-after aspiration for user groups of the facility including the Goolwa-Port Elliot Football Club, Goolwa Netball Club, and Goolwa Cricket Club as well as benefitting many other users of the precinct.

Council look forward to an ongoing relationship with the clubs throughout the development process and beyond.
