Prospect Lifestyle Precinct

Project Overview

Prospect Oval has been a cornerstone of our community since 1898. As a historic sporting hub and gathering place, it holds immense significance for generations of South Australians.

Council is currently developing the Prospect Lifestyle Precinct Masterplan – a once-in-a-generation project.

This plan will see the Prospect Oval Precinct and surrounds including Prospect Memorial Gardens, Prospect Tennis Club, North Adelaide Croquet Club and Council’s commercial land on Main North Road transformed into a quality health, wellness, fitness and sporting precinct that attracts a higher level of community usage, sporting participation and economic development.

This project is one of Council's Top 4 Priorities in our 2023-2027 Strategic Community Plan, as well as Council’s Advocacy Priorities.

By creating a connected, multi-use precinct for sports, recreation and connection, we aim to serve the diverse needs of our growing community, from elite athletes to dog walkers to families.

This is your chance to shape the future of the Precinct.

Phase 1 community consultation is open from 8 July until 30 August 2024 and we would love to hear our community’s needs, ideas, and aspirations for the space.

The feedback we receive in this phase of consultation will directly influence the development of initial concept designs.
