Thebarton Oval Precinct

In 2022 Council was approached by the Adelaide Football Club (the Crows) to enter a long-term lease of the Thebarton Oval Precinct.

The lease of the Precinct, which includes Kings Reserve, will enable the Crows to redevelop the area for their home grounds and provide the community with more usable community space.

As part of the lease arrangements, the Crows will be seeking to upgrade the area and, as such, are currently developing a masterplan. The masterplan will identify 6 key themes which are important to the community:

  • removal of barriers to activate community spaces
  • preservation of pedestrian and cycling accessibility
  • a unified community precinct approach
  • enablement of community-based facilities
  • improving the existing sporting infrastructure
  • allowing for passive recreation.

As part of the masterplan development process, a Thebarton Oval Precinct Masterplan Advisory Group (MAG) has been established to progress plans for the area. This group includes 4 community members, a Kaurna representative, 3 Elected Members of Council, 3 Adelaide Football Club representatives and 2 Council officers.

Notes from these meetings are published below.

Adelaide Football Club has also launched a website dedicated to the latest news on the upgrade of the facility.

To be kept informed of project updates and community engagement opportunities, people can register their interest via the Adelaide Football Club website.
