$6.51 million Richardson Reserve redevelopment
Richardson Reserve is undergoing a $6.51 million upgrade. The three-year project involves the construction of a multi-purpose synthetic playing field and a new three-level clubroom facility for Modbury Vista Soccer Club.
The project cost will be partially offset through a $500,000 grant from the federal government’s SportAus Community Sport Infrastructure program and a $227,000 grant from the State Government Local Infrastructure Partnership.
The redevelopment was approved at the 14 August 2018 Council meeting following consideration of the community engagement outcomes, increasing community demand for soccer and the future needs of the club.
The scheduled works will be completed in two stages:
The first stage of the project incorporates the installation of the synthetic playing field, which will be set-up as two soccer pitches, and the potential demolition of the existing clubroom building. Work will commence on site in mid to late November 2018, with completion anticipated in late 2019.
The second stage of the project will include the construction of the three-level clubroom facility, which is anticipated to be finished by June 2020.

Richardson Reserve will be unable to be used until works are completed in late 2019. While works are taking place, you may wish to visit other nearby parks and facilities. All are less than a 10-minute walk from Richardson Reserve. Please see the map for further detail.
