Development at Bert Jeffery Park

Bert Jeffery Park

In September 2018 Council approved a 105m2 building located in the North West corner of Bert Jeffery Park to assist with enhancing the use of the local area. The building will support activity at the park including organised sport and community bookings.

The budget of $497,000 to prepare and construct the Bert Jeffery building was approved by Council for this financial year and will include the following facilities:

  • Two non-gender specific change rooms
  • A kitchenette
  • A universally accessible toilet – which will only be open when the building is in use
  • A small awning facing the centre of the park.

Bert Jeffery Park is 3.31 hectares and is available to the whole community from dog walkers, picnickers, joggers and other forms of casual sport and recreation. It is also used during the summer months to host cricket matches.

The building located in the North West corner of the park will be constructed in one stage with no future stages planned. It will be able to be booked by sporting and community groups and individuals once open.

Consultancy and architectural services have been appointed to bring the 2018 plan for Bert Jeffery Park to fruition, with construction tender specifications expected to be advertised in August and works due to be finished in November 2020.

Projects at Bert Jeffery Park, Shirley Strickland Reserve and Tompkins Park were already under way before the Active Reserves Infrastructure Strategy (ARIS), a 20 year future plan for active reserves was created, and have therefore been noted in the ARIS as Council had already made decisions and commitments in relation to these projects.

The ARIS has undergone extensive community consultation and is due to go to Council for endorsement in June.
