Beverley Park and Hurstville golf courses could be used for open space under proposal

POSTED ON February 21, 2024 @ 5:12 pm

Beverley Park Golf Course and/or Hurstville Golf Course could be partially reclaimed for active open space, athletics fields repurposed and the use of Jubilee Stadium could be expanded to include other sports such as basketball and netball.

These are some of the proposals contained in the draft Georges River Community Infrastructure Needs Assessment and Acquisition Area Strategy.

The strategy has been drafted to cater to the updated forecast population which will see the LGA grow by 24,726 people between 2021-2036.

It identifies gaps and shortfalls in local community infrastructure based on population projections and trends and offers potential ideas to address these gaps.

The strategy lists a Summary of Actions.

These include: ‘Explore partial reclamation of golf courses for active open space.’

“Partial reclamation of the Beverley Park Golf Course and/or Hurstville Golf Course provides opportunities to deliver the gap in indoor sports facilities sport courts,” the strategy states.

“Reclamation of existing golf courses may address open space deficit in the long term. Active recreation at the Beverley Park Golf Course may support the growth areas of Hurstville and Kogarah.

‘There is an opportunity to explore the repurposing of one athletics facility to help meet demand pressures for other types of assets identified, where repurposing may serve a wider community.

“Aquatic Facilities- At the time the strategy was completed,the LGA had three aquatic facilities. One of the three, Hurstville Aquatic Leisure Centre, is Sydney’s most visited aquatic centre. Analysis undertaken to inform this strategy suggests that three aquatic facilities should be provided to meet the needs of the Georges River community with suggestions that masterplanning work at Jubilee Stadium could potentially incorporate a contemporary aquatic facility.”
