Richardson Reserve redevelopment
Richardson Reserve is undergoing a $6.6 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:
Stage 1 works have been completed, with Richardson Reserve now available for community use.
The synthetic surface is able to be used by the community at times it is not being used by the Modbury Vista Soccer Club or its associated hirers. Animals and the playing of golf are not permitted on the synthetic surface.
Stage 1 work included:
- Synthetic playing surface installation
- Sports field floodlighting installation
- Additional parking, including emergency access to pitch, disability and general visitor parking zones
- Demolition of the existing club rooms
Construction of the new club rooms - work to begin in May 2020
At its meeting on Tuesday 14 August 2018 Council considered the Community Engagement Outcomes Report and decided not to sell a portion of Richardson Reserve, Wynn Vale. Read the full report
