Public consultation held in 2015 led to Council’s consideration of a playground on Moggill Rd, Moggill after some residents highlighted the need for an all-ages sporting facility in the area. More than 60 submissions were received during this consultation which reflected strong community support. Council invited further input from peak sporting bodies and the original concept of a local playground evolved to a district-level sporting facility that will service the wider Moggill-Bellbowrie and Anstead communities.
This 2016/17 budget will significantly contribute to the development of the Moggill District Sports Park with football and cricket ovals; courts for netball, tennis and basketball; carparks, change rooms, picnic facilities and barbeques all included in the plan. Provision has even been made for a future clubhouse.
Construction will commence in 2017 with the sporting facilities being available for use in 2018.
