Key Features

  • The new fields are located in the south west corner of the Adelaide Parklands. Its proximity supports existing transit connections.
  • The facility has two permanent hockey fields, a grandstand that has 500 permanent seats, players change rooms, administration offices and club rooms.
  • The multi-use facility is designed as a new home base for Hockey SA and as a community facility for organised amateur sport and general recreation. Such a facility provides greater community amenity to the expanding South West Corner population.
  • The design is low in profile and takes conceptual references from the eucalyptus trees within this section of the parklands to derive an architectural roof form and structure

The proposed site is well connected to the neighbourhood streets that link the South West Corner to the Parklands and these fields.

Key north-south street connections feed directly into an entry forecourt to the proposed facility creating an accessible public amenity for city residents and users.
