Council’s 2017 Northern Beaches Sportsgrounds Strategy includes a 15 year plan for developing sportsgrounds and facilities so community needs for more fields and new and improved facilities are met.

Key strategic priorities include:

  • Upgrading existing sportsfield lighting to required standards, ensuring a consistent quality of lighting across all sportsgrounds.
  • Provision of new lighting on sportsfields without lights, to increase the hours fields are available for sport.

Council has begun implementing the Strategy and in 2017/18 is planning the following improvements.

  • Upgrade sportsground lighting, to Australian Standards, at the following locations:
- Forestville Park field 1, Forestville.
- LM Graham Reserve sportsground, North Manly.
- North Narrabeen Reserve fields 3 and 4, North Narrabeen.
- Old Reub Hudson sportsfield, John Fisher Park, Curl Curl.
- St Matthews Farm sportsground, Cromer.
- Dee Why Oval field 1, Dee Why.
    • Install new lighting at Tristram Reserve sportsground, Beacon Hill.

    We are seeking feedback on the Tristram Reserve proposal, as it is a new scheme.
