Allum Park

​Major upgrades have been scheduled at two sporting fields in Greenacre, as part of a $9.3 million program being carried out by the City of Canterbury Bankstown.

Mayor, Khal Asfour, said the project is one of 24 to be delivered in 2017-18, in parks and reserves.
“Initially, only one of the two sporting fields at Allum Park was to be upgraded, but Council officers have done a great job in reconfiguring the work to ensure both can be upgraded, after Councillor Bilal El-Hayek and myself requested a review of the design,” Mayor Asfour said.
“New irrigation and drainage systems will be installed, and new turf laid.
“Once work is completed, the fields will dry faster following rain, ensuring they will be back in use sooner.”
This project at Allum Park follows the installation of lights in 2015.
“The quality of sporting fields and facilities we provide are the envy of many other areas of Sydney,” Mayor Asfour said.
“We know a healthy community is very important, so that’s why we are committed to providing the best facilities, as well as programs like Active Canterbury-Bankstown.”
Councillor, Bilal El-Hayek, joined the Mayor for today’s announcement.
“Hundreds of active residents play a number of sports at Allum Park, so these upgrades are going to benefit them now and for generations to come,” he said.
Work will commence in January and be completed around June – weather permitting, with the Greenacre Eagles Soccer Club teams relocated to nearby fields while the improvements are being carried out.
Some of the other projects scheduled in 2017-18 include:
  • Sporting field upgrades at Bennett Park, Roselands;
  • Design and construction of a multi-purpose all-weather synthetic pitch at Jensen Park, Regents Park;
  • Upgrades to the toilets and grandstands at Memorial Oval, Bankstown; and
  • Stage 2 of the cricket wicket relocation at Kelso Park North, Panania, and upgrades to the sporting field, including new turf wickets.
