About the project

Council is giving the community more to see and do in a clean and green Brisbane by re-establishing a sport and recreation precinct at Nudgee Recreation Reserve.

The reserve has a long sporting history dating back to the 1940s, with evidence of cricket and football being played on the site. Improvements to the reserve will deliver much-needed sporting and recreation facilities in the area.

The Nudgee Recreation Reserve district sports park will complement the growing park network in the north-eastern suburbs of Brisbane and provide an outdoor setting for more structured sporting activities such as touch football, cricket and soccer.

The Nudgee Recreation Reserve project will include the following improvements:

  • shared use sporting fields that will cater to multiple sports including touch football, cricket and soccer
  • fitness equipment and shared paths for walking, running and cycling
  • BMX track
  • dog off-leash area
  • sports field lighting to improve night-time visibility and safety for park users
  • new car park featuring 223 spaces, including parking bays for motorcycles and people with a disability
  • new clubhouse with change rooms, canteen, storage, meeting rooms and public toilets
  • a playground ancillary to the sports fields including picnic settings with shelters and barbecue facility.
