Sports and Community Facility Planning

At the City of Marion we believe that our community should have access to a broad range of high quality sport and community facilities so that everyone has the opportunity to lead an active, healthy lifestyle.

In April 2015 Council endorsed investigations being undertaken with peak sporting bodies, relevant clubs, funding bodies and agencies to seek partnering opportunities for the development of plans and potential funding solutions for the following sports infrastructure:

Marion Council is seeking Federal and State Government funding for 50 percent of the costs of the $19.75 million redevelopment of Mitchell Park Sports and Community Centre.

Plans include an indoor recreation facility with multi-purpose courts for sports including basketball and netball, a two-storey community centre, gym, function area and café.

There will be facilities for football, cricket, rugby, tennis and the Dover Gardens Dog Club.

A new $3.5 million BMX track is set to be built in O’Halloran Hill, boosting facilities for local riders and attracting world class events.  

Marion and Onkaparinga Councils have each agreed to contribute $750,000, while the State Government has committed $2 million to build the Union Cycliste International (UCI) facility.

The land at Majors Road is currently owned by the State Government and was chosen because it provides a suitable noise buffer from the surrounding residential area. It also links to mountain bike networks being planned by the State Government.

The track will be named the Sam Willoughby BMX Track in honour of the Olympian medallist and world champion who hails from the City of Marion.
