Reconstruction of four hectares of sportsground playing surface at Alexandra Park (Ian Barker Fields)
The upgrade of Ian Barker Fields is a key recommendation contained within the Alexandra Park Sports Precinct Master Plan, which was developed after extensive consultation with key users including St Pat’s Soccer Club, North Albury Auskick, Steamers Rugby Union Club, East Albury Cricket Club and Cricket Albury Wodonga.
The project proposes to reconstruct a four hectare area into a multi-purpose playing fields with lighting. The upgraded area can be used for AFL (one full-size senior oval), soccer (four senior-size soccer fields) or cricket (synthetic wicket). The project also includes the installation of perimeter fencing.
