Play ball: Revamped sports field for Alexandria

Perry Park is set for a major upgrade following community feedback.

Once a sewage farm and then a rubbish tip, the 16,000 square metre area will be home to a revamped, welcoming and well-designed park.

The park upgrade will include:

  • a FIFA-sized multipurpose synthetic sports field for hockey, soccer, rugby league, rugby union, junior AFL9s, Oztag, futsal and touch footy
  • change rooms, accessible toilets, a covered outdoor area and storage room
  • a loop path that connects to surrounding streets and an accessible entry ramp into the park
  • new lighting, spectator seating and fencing
  • a new paved zone for pedestrian access, minibus and car drop-offs, and parking
  • an open lawn where locals can relax.

Perry Park is located in an industrial area on the corner of Maddox Street and Bourke Road in Alexandria and is close to Green Square train station.

We opened the Perry Park Recreation Centre in 2019 and are enclosing the outdoor courts to be used by more sporting groups, in any weather.

Our population is increasing and we need more sporting facilities. We look forward to creating a space for residents and workers to meet, play, train and chill out.

Construction on these new facilities is expected to begin in 2022 and be completed in 2023.
