Sportsground Improvements

Canberrans love their sport and keeping active. We're upgrading sportsground facilities to ensure they continue to meet the needs of the community and local sports teams.

Higgins neighbourhood oval

We are reactivating Higgins neighbourhood oval for use by local sporting teams for games and training and to improve the overall user experience. As well as use by sporting clubs, the oval will be an active green space for the community. The two fields will have multiple configurations to cater for rugby league, rugby union and Oztag. The new pavilion will include toilets, changing areas, a canteen and storage space for sporting groups.

Features of the new sportsground will include:

  • two combination sports fields
  • new synthetic cricket wicket
  • irrigated turf
  • lighting for after dark training
  • a new sportsground pavilion
  • a community water refill station
  • a tree replanting program.

Construction is expected to be complete in early 2020.

$1.3 million was also provided in the 2019-20 ACT Budget to undertake the following improvements:

  • Nicholls enclosed oval: lighting upgrade
  • Yarralumla sportsground: change room and pavilion refurbishment works
  • Boomanulla oval: lighting upgrade.
