Sport and recreation precinct planning

Brisbane City Council undertakes sport and recreation precinct plans, in consultation with Council’s community facility tenants and community users, to ensure the optimal use of valuable community facilities and to inform the future investment, development and management of these sites.

Brisbane has an aspiration to be a city of diverse and accessible recreational opportunities for all ages, abilities and backgrounds, with better facilities and venues for all ages to enjoy.

Creating more to see and do in a clean and green Brisbane means more opportunities to enjoy Brisbane's beautiful climate and connect with family and friends in the places that make our city great. Growing our lifestyle means great public spaces, parks, community venues, sporting facilities and clubs are easy to access providing safe, diverse opportunities for everyone to meet, play and exercise. 

Summary

This table provides summary information about sport and recreation planning which is currently underway in the 2019-20 financial year.
Parks and wards

Sport and recreation precinct planning is currently underway for:

Project outcomes Comprehensive long-term plans that guide investment, development and management of these precincts by Council and the community.
Latest update Draft plans for Enoggera Memorial Park, Keperra Picnic Ground Park and Murarrie Recreation Reserve have been developed. Feedback was sought during community and sporting club consultation, including information sessions at each park on 24 August 2019.  For more information and upcoming community consultation dates, read our Enoggera Creek Sport and Recreation Precinct Plan page.

About the project

Specialist consultants have been engaged to provide sport and recreation expertise and undertake consultation with Council’s community facility tenants and community users in the preparation of these plans.

Consultation assists Council’s community facility tenants to understand the differing demands on these sites and provide an opportunity to promote their own development needs.

The plans include recommendations for the development and management of the sport and recreation precincts in the short, medium and long-term.

These recommendations do not commit Council or tenants to their implementation; however, the plans do support Council and the community to seek grant funding and other investment opportunities.

Precinct plan objectives

The objectives of these sport and recreation precinct plans are to:

  • undertake a needs assessment of current and future demand of each precinct and associated activities
  • identify and plan opportunities that optimise participation within each precinct
  • ensure access and inclusion principles are integrated across all precinct facilities as part of the precinct planning process
  • engage and work with the community and interest groups in the future planning and management of each precinct
  • strategically plan and schedule future development.

Community engagement 

Thank you for your feedback on Council's community engagement on the Enoggera Memorial Park, Keperra Picnic Ground Park and Murarrie Recreation Reserve draft plans. Council is now considering your comments. Concept plans should be available for these precincts by the end of 2019.
