About the Project

On 28 July 2018, Council adopted the Kirkham Park Masterplan, which outlines the future for the site and location of sports facilities, parking and internal roads.

Part of Stage 1 of the Masterplan includes the construction of two new rugby league fields, one being an international size field and the other a modified league size for junior competition and training.

The construction of the fields will include:

  • significant bulk earthworks;
  • floodlighting of both fields to 100 lux training-standard
  • irrigation and field drainage; and
  • turfing, retaining walls, fencing and landscaping.

A copy of the Kirkham Park Masterplan can be found under Project Documents.
