With a long-standing sporting history dating back to the 1940s, the Nudgee Recreation Reserve has witnessed countless cricket and football matches over the years. Construction works on upcoming improvements promise to deliver much-needed sporting and recreation facilities upgrades for the local community.

Designed to accommodate a range of sports, including touch football, cricket, and soccer, the precinct will feature new professional-grade sporting fields. The following key features will enhance the experience for residents and visitors:

  • shared use sporting fields that will cater to multiple sports including touch football, cricket and soccer
  • sports field lighting to improve night-time visibility and safety for park users
  • a new 223-space car park and pathway connections to Nudgee Train Station and Railway Street for easy access
  • a new clubhouse with change rooms, canteen, storage, meeting rooms and public toilets.
  • a dog off leash area
  • BMX track
  • playground, picnic settings with shelters and barbeque facility
  • walking/running/cycling path.

The project is scheduled for completion in late 2023, weather and site conditions permitting. During the construction period, the reserve will be temporarily closed to ensure the safety of visitors. However, access around the worksite will be maintained to minimise inconvenience.

“It’s a big project and you get an understanding of how expansive this project is when you see all of the elements including the sporting fields, starting to take shape,” said Councillor for Northgate Ward Adam Allan.

“It’s exciting to see works now started on the Fitness path and the BMX track, now that the remediation stage has been completed,” Cr Allan said.
