Central Oval Community Sporting Hub
The redevelopment and rejuvenation of the oval provides a landmark community facility to the Port Augusta area, offering multi-use for sporting, functions and community events such as concerts and fetes.
The facility houses basketball and netball courts, an AFL compliant oval, gym, cafe, changerooms and internal and external spectator areas with retractable seating . Doubling as a community facility the building also includes a large sub-dividable function area with kitchens and bars, areas for community groups and administration offices.
“Having been involved in the planning and delivery of recreation and sport infrastructure projects over the last 17 years, what I have seen developed is a beautifully designed, functional and fit for purpose sport and community level facility that is unparalleled in South Australia.
The result is a facility that Port Augusta can be truly proud of and that reflects in no small part the way Studio Nine has listened to the community, worked with the Council and brought to bear an obvious high standard of design intellect.”
