Work has started on the $2.5 million upgrade of Jensen Park.

City of Canterbury Bankstown Mayor Khal Asfour recently turned the first sod, kicking off construction.

"Over the next 25 weeks, Jensen Park will be transformed into the City’s first all-weather multi-purpose sporting field, with the installation of synthetic turf," he said.

"Aside from being a full-sized football pitch, the ground will also be lined to accommodate for other sports, such as half-sized football games, rugby and futsal.

"An additional synthetic area to the north of the main field will also be constructed, providing a space for warming-up and training."

Jensen Park has been the home of the Bankstown District Amateur Football Association and Bankstown City Football Club for many years.

"This project is part of our $16.6 million commitment to upgrading sports fields in 2018-19, and is expected be completed in December this year – weather permitting," Mayor Asfour said.

Other projects proposed include:

  • Amour Park – upgrade playing surface;
  • Beaman Park - ground improvements;
  • Carysfield Park - install basketball half court;
  • Lansdowne Reserve – accessibility improvements;
  • The Crest - clubhouse roof replacement;
  • Clemton Park – install new irrigation system;
  • Kinch Reserve - lighting upgrade;
  • Mount Lewis Park - ground improvements;
  • Parry Park (stage 1) – upgrade playing surface;
  • Roberts Park - lighting upgrade; and
  • Waterworth Park – upgrade playing surface.
