Randwick City council is in the process of transforming Chifley’s former Women’s Athletics field into a new community park and multi-purpose sporting facility. Chifley Sports Reserve initially began as a household waste facility before it was cleaned up to become an Athletics field in 1955. But now the 7.7 hectare reserve will be revamped into a key recreational space for local residents and will become a sporting hub for a number of different sporting communities in the area. The new facilities include: cycling pathways, two baseball fields, a multi-purpose sporting ground capable of supporting several sporting codes, and a 100% recycled storm water irrigation system. Future developments that are set to be constructed in 2014-15 include a skate park, outdoor gym equipment, and an all-abilities playground.
Randwick City Council is undertaking a range of works to transform a former Women’s Athletic’s Field on the Sydney suburb of Chifley into a new sporting facility and community park… The reserve is one of the largest sporting reserves in Randwick City and an important recreational space for the residents living in Randwick City’s southern suburbs. The Council’s upgrade program will restore the park to a quality condition and provide a new facility for children and adults to play a range of sports. Work also includes providing a range of regional recreational facilities for local residents and greater Sydney.
