Goodwood Oval is a key sporting precinct in the City of Unley, catering for organised sport (including Australian rules football, cricket, tennis and hockey) and public recreation. The grandstand at Goodwood Oval is leased by the Goodwood Saints Football Club and Goodwood Cricket Club and is located on Curzon Avenue, Millswood.

This facility is over 60 years old and like all of Councils assets, this asset needs to be upgraded from time to time to keep up with modern requirements.

Since the development of an Improvement Plan in 2014, Council has worked with the clubs to develop options for a future upgrade in order to secure external funding.

At its meeting on 27 November 2017, Council accepted State Government funding of $2.5 million for the grandstand upgrade, as well as $150k from the sports and clubs, and Council also allocated $950k towards the project. At this time, Council also committed to a two-storey as its preferred upgrade option.

The redevelopment aims to establish the Goodwood Oval precinct as a regional sporting hub that provides excellent facilities for sport and vibrant open space for the broader community.

The grandstand upgrades have been designed to ensure that we meet the requirements of the respective sports for local competition, including the AFL and Cricket Australia, and will promote the growth of both sports, including women's participation in the region. The Goodwood Oval redevelopment will:

  • Improve and provide quality facilities for all users of the oval, including for the first time, change rooms designed specifically for the needs of women and junior participants
  • Improve the aesthetic appearance of the grandstands and streetscape
  • Improve accessibility for those with mobility impairments
  • Provide new facilities available for community use.

Council endorsed the final draft designs on 29 January 2018 for community consultation and is now seeking feedback from the community to refine the designs.
