Residents will soon have access to a new recreational facility, with works to transform the existing Rosemeadow tennis courts on Cleopatra Drive to multipurpose courts, incorporating two futsal courts and two basketball courts, due to commence this month.
Mayor of Campbelltown, Cr George Brticevic, visited the site ahead of work starting, saying the upgrade of Council’s sporting facilities was vital to meeting the health, fitness and social needs of the community.
“In May, Council launched a 20-year plan for sport and recreational facilities in Campbelltown to ensure the needs and expectations of our community are met as we face unprecedented population growth – a forecast 270,000 people by 2036,” he said.
“The long term plan outlined improvements to sporting facilities in the short term, including the creation of the multipurpose courts at Rosemeadow, and the new outdoor beach volleyball court and refurbishment of Eagle Vale Central.’’
The multipurpose court project will see the removal of the existing synthetic grass surface for the installation of a sports acrylic finish and new line marking, as well as lighting upgrades, fencing replacement, park bench and shade structure installation, and the sealing of the car park.
The new facility will be open to the public daily, with floodlighting enabling extended use until 9pm Sunday to Monday, and 10pm Friday and Saturday.
“Rosemeadow residents have been calling for improved sporting facilities in their neighbourhood, and I’m pleased this project will provide futsal and basketball enthusiasts at the southern end of our city with easy access to high quality courts,” Cr Brticevic said.
Work will be undertaken during October and November.
