Camden Oval upgrade - Stage1

The Camden Oval Master Plan pdf (828KB) identifies a multifaceted upgrade of its facilities including a new building with clubroom change rooms, kitchen and bar, upgrade of existing clubrooms and new synthetic soccer pitch.

Stage 1 of the upgrade has commenced and involves the conversion of the senior soccer pitch to synthetic turf as well as other minor civil works, such as kerbing, around the pitch. It is anticipated the synthetic pitch will be complete by around May 2018.

While works are being undertaken, restrictions to car parking to the east and north of the site, as well as access around the senior soccer pitch, may be in place.

We apologise for any inconvenience during the construction periods of these projects and will endeavour to keep you updated on the closure times via our website and social media channels.
