Mitchell Park Sports & Community Centre

The design of a multi-functional sport and community complex, establishing a recreation and sports hub for the growing community.

The new two storey building will house shared multi-function areas, two indoor multi-purpose courts and changing and support facilities for indoor and outdoor sports. Two outdoor tennis courts, three retractable cricket nets, facilities for the local dog club and a new carpark also form part of the sites redevelopment. The integration of a community centre will replace the current Neighbourhood Centre, activating the site throughout the daytime to deliver a wide range of community programs.

Drawing inspiration from the sites history as an orchard, the concept explores the ideas of grafting and lifecycle of stone fruit, translated into the built form through curved lines, colour graded screens and a strong response to the surrounding context.

The project received Planning Approval in August 2020 and is set to commence on site later in the year. The new facility is due to open in the first quarter of 2022.
