Unley Oval is a treasured regional open space in the heart of the City of Unley. It's home to established sporting clubs such as AFL, cricket, lawn tennis, and lawn bowls, and serves as a popular community hub. People of all ages and abilities use Unley Oval throughout the week, from early morning to early evening, making it a vibrant and inclusive space. Whether it's for playing on the playgrounds, enjoying a family kick-around, walking the dog, or celebrating a birthday, Unley Oval is a place for everyone.

Investigation into a Permanent Perimeter Fence

The Council is exploring the idea of installing a permanent perimeter fence with public access openings around Unley Oval. Currently, much of the southern half of the oval is enclosed. The investigation will consider extending the fence from the grandstand on Trimmer Terrace, along Frederick Street, to the lawn tennis facilities on Langham Terrace. This concept will account for existing features like cricket nets, the arbor structure, playgrounds, mounds, trees, and park amenities (shelters, BBQs, seating).

A permanent fence would replace the temporary fences used during Sturt’s senior men's SANFL games and recent AFLW games. Additionally, it could allow the Council to host ticketed community events on the oval outside of the sporting schedule.

How to Get Involved

The Council is committed to a co-design process, ensuring the community is actively involved in shaping the investigation and reviewing design concepts. Engagement will take place in two stages:

Step 1: 8 - 29 July 2024

  • Purpose: Understand the community’s appreciation of Unley Oval and the level of support for a permanent perimeter fence
  • Outcome: Community feedback will be presented to the Council to determine if further investigations are carried out, including the development of the perimeter fence design brief.

Consultation Methods:

  • Online Survey: Share your thoughts via the survey below.
  • Information Displays: Visit displays at the Unley Civic Centre, Goodwood Library, and Unley Library.
  • In-Person Sessions: Join drop-in sessions at Unley Oval in the final week to discuss your ideas in person (Refer to Key Dates).

We encourage everyone to participate and help shape the future of Unley Oval.
