Darien Street Sport Park Expansion

The Darien Street Sport Park expansion project upgraded the existing sports ground facilities to a District Sports Park standard to better meet the sport and recreational needs of the community.

Summary

Address Darien Street, Bridgeman Downs 
Ward McDowall
Project outcome The Darien Street Sport Park Expansion upgraded the existing sports ground facilities to better meet the sport and recreational needs of the community.  
Latest update The final stage of works to upgrade the sport park is now complete.

About the project

The project was constructed in stages. Stage 1 involved upgrading the car park and entry road, constructing stormwater harvesting infrastructure, installing lighting on the two existing soccer fields, installing essential services and some offset planting to improve the habitat value of the adjacent bushland.

Stage 2 works involved constructing a third soccer field including connection to a stormwater harvesting system which collects rainwater runoff to irrigate the field. 

Stage 3, the final stage of works, included resurfacing and connecting the irrigation system to the two existing fields, installing field lighting, new shelters, a pathway and landscaping around the new field, and final resurfacing of the car park and access road. 

The project team identified a rare bird of prey, the Grey Goshawk, nesting in bushland adjacent to the sport park. In line with Brisbane City Council’s commitment to the protection of local fauna, construction works were undertaken in stages so as not to impact the Grey Goshawk’s breeding season. 

Project timing

Stage 1 works were completed in August 2015. Stage 2 began in early September 2015 and was completed in February 2016.

Stage 3 began in late 2016 and final rectification works were completed in early March 2018.

Project benefits 

The project will provide improved amenities for existing and new sporting clubs and extra space for additional sporting facilities.
