Reconstruction of four hectares of sportsground playing surface at Alexandra Park (Ian Barker Fields)
Half of Ian Barker Fields (part of Alexandra Park Sports Precinct) is unplayable while the other half is substandard due to continued subsidence. Reconstruction and expanding the playing surface to four hectares will assist in providing infrastructure for the increase in participation in a number of sports (Soccer, Auskick, Rugby Union and potentially Rugby League).
$400,000 in 2021-22 will allow the project to commence in early 2022. The $2.5M allocated in 2022-23 will enable completion of stage one works (southern two hectares).
