Booking Information

You are invited you to join me for the official ground-breaking ceremony. This event will signal the start of work to transform the Mitchell Park Sports and Community club into a modern facility for the benefit of sports people, community groups and local residents.

Member for Boothby Nicolle Flint MP will join me to officially conduct the ground-breaking ceremony, which will be held near the clubrooms from 1pm to 2pm on Saturday, 21 November.

There will be a free barbecue and I will toss the coin for the A Grade cricket game which starts at 1.30pm.

The $15.74 million facility will address shortages for indoor recreation facilities in southern Adelaide, link to the nearby Tonsley Innovation District and be a hub for community events.

The new Mitchell Park Sports and Community Centre will include:

• Two indoor courts, including for basketball, netball, volleyball

• Community function area

• Facilities for football, tennis, netball , and dog club accommodation

• Fitness area, change rooms, kiosk, expanded car parking

• Relocated Mitchell Park Neighbourhood Centre with meeting and training rooms


On behalf of Council, I thank sports people and residents for their suggestions during community consultation on the redevelopment.

Council invested $10 million and the Australian Government committed $5 million to fund the new facility.

We hope to see you at the reserve.
