We’ve developed a concept plan for reinvigorating the Brunswick Street Oval sporting and community facilities, and we want to hear what you think.

The plan includes improvements to the grandstand, community rooms, tennis pavilion and courts, as well as the surrounding landscape.

In early 2019 we spoke to the sporting clubs, community groups, local residents and others who use the Brunswick Street Oval facilities. You told us you want to see this much-loved corner of Edinburgh Gardens enhanced, through:

  • Retaining and celebrating the heritage grandstand.
  • Upgrading the facilities for the sporting clubs to enable them to cater to growing demand and better support women and girls to participate.
  • Providing fit-for-purpose meeting rooms for community use.
  • Improving the gardens immediately surrounding the facilities.
  • More public toilets.
  • Improving access and safety.

What is a concept plan?

A concept plan is an early phase of the design process, which presents a general idea of what the final design could look like. It is about the concepts or ideas behind the design, and not the specific design details (which will come later). We are seeking your feedback on these design ideas.

We developed the concept plan based on the feedback we received from the community, as well as an analysis of the needs of the sporting clubs and community groups who use the facilities, both now and into the future.

Next steps

We asked for your thoughts on the draft concept plan in October-November 2019.

We are now reviewing your feedback and will provide an update on the next steps of the project before the end of 2019.
