In order to help meet the growing needs of our community and provide better and more user-friendly spaces, the City of West Torrens is upgrading a number of larger recreational spaces in West Torrens, including Camden Park, Mellor Park, Apex Park, Lockleys Oval, Kings Reserve and Weigall Oval.
Lockleys Oval upgrade
The upgrade of Lockleys Oval aims to improve and consolidate the current buildings and facilities at the northern end of the oval for the user groups and enhance the amenity of the site.
The following works have been completed:
- demolition of existing buildings and facilities associated with football, soccer, baseball and the pigeon club; in addition to the public toilet block on eastern side of oval and Guide Hall and riding arena on the northern side of oval
- construction of a new two-storey clubroom, including player and umpire change rooms, showers, toilets, first aid, storage, gymnasium, office space, meeting room, kitchen/canteen/bar and social/function amenities to cater for five sporting codes - Australian Rules football, baseball, soccer, cricket and tennis clubs
- closure of the vehicle entrance on Netley Avenue
- creation of a network of internal roadways and car parking areas to service a new shared pavilion
- construction of four additional tennis courts, to provide six courts in total on site, plus two junior courts.
Additional elements will be upgraded from mid-2020, including a playground at the northern end of the complex and landscaping.
The tennis courts are scheduled to be open to the public by the end of 2020 upon implementation of the 'book-a-court' system.
While works are being undertaken, restrictions to car parking 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.
