As part of the CN Strategic Sports Plan (SSP) 2020, a number of recommendations were made relating to Adamstown Park including developing a masterplan to guide the future vision and renewal of infrastructure over the next 10-15 years.
Specific recommendations from the SSP included: improvements to the field layout, drainage, irrigation, lighting layout, playing surfaces, upgrades to amenities for football and cricket, and ensuring infrastructure at Adamstown No.1 sportsground complies with NPL standards.
Stage 1 Works Completed
Broadmeadow Magic Junior Football Club has been successful in receiving $1 million in grant funding for Stage 1 works under the Greater Cities and Regional Sport Facility Fund 2021/22. Stage 1 works commenced in February 2023 and are now complete. For more information, see the Stage 1 Works project page.
Why develop a draft Masterplan for Adamstown Park?
CN has prepared a draft Masterplan for Adamstown Park (including Myers Park) with initial consultation with key sporting user groups to ensure that the proposed works are consistent with the long term vision of the park and meet the needs of all user groups. The Masterplan will be implemented in stages over a 10 year period, with approved grant funding works being implemented as Stage 1 from February to July 2023.
What's included in the draft Masterplan?
The draft Masterplan aims to develop a staged and flexible multi-use precinct to meet the recreation and sporting needs of the surrounding community, and enhance the visitor experience for players, officials and spectators.
Key sporting improvements include:
- Improved field layout to increase the number of FIFA standard soccer fields from 2 to 4
- Flood lighting renewal/upgrades
- Refurbishment of cricket nets
- Improved irrigation and drainage
- New toilet amenities to service Adamstown No.3, No.4 and No.5 sports grounds
