The Cove Sports Netball and Lower Oval redevelopment and has received $2.5 million worth of State Government Funding.
At the City of Marion, we believe that our community should have access to a broad range of community facilities so that everyone has the opportunity to lead an active, healthy lifestyle.
The Cove Sports and Community Club is currently home to five sporting clubs comprising of football (Australian Rules), cricket, soccer, netball, and BMX. More than 1600 members share the facility.
Significant investments have been made in BMX and soccer that will transfer them from the site to new world-class facilities on Majors Road, O’Halloran Hill at the Sam Willoughby International BMX Facility, and the Southern Soccer Facility.
Between 11 August and 25 September 2020 Marion Council consulted with the community to re-shape the Cove Sports and Community Club at Oval Road, Hallett Cove.
During the General Council meeting on 27 January 2021, Council noted the outcome of the community consultation for the reshaping of the Cove Sports and Community Club and resolved to undertake a detailed feasibility analysis and business case.
Consideration of your feedback resulted in Council endorsing scope comprising of 2 components.

Cove Sports Clubrooms and Upper Oval - is proposed to be a new Cove sports clubroom, realignment of the existing oval, play spaces and landscaping.
