Construction continues on the Springfield Central Sports Complex
The new Springfield Central Sports Complex currently under construction, will be the single biggest boost to sporting facilities in the city’s history.
They will rank among the best municipal fields and courts in Queensland.
Lendlease, developer of the award-winning Springfield Lakes and its latest community, Springfield Rise at Spring Mountain, is building the $38 million complex with Ipswich City Council contributing $4 million and the balance of $34 million funded by developer contributions.
Lendlease Communities Managing Director Matthew Wallace said Lendlease is pleased to be delivering the much-needed new sports fields for the local Springfield community and the wider Ipswich City region.
“Our vision for Springfield Rise at Spring Mountain was to create a ‘five minute’ community where residents have everything they need within reach and the new sports fields are a big part of this,” said Mr Wallace.
“The Springfield Central Sports Complex will be the district’s largest sporting precinct and is designed to meet the needs of a thriving community catering for a diverse range of ages and sporting interests, creating countless opportunities to play and be active.”
Interest from sporting clubs remains high following the closing of expressions of interest in August. Council expects to announce the successful sports clubs by (insert date and/or month).
Work on the project started in late-2017 opposite Springfield Central State High School and St Peters Lutheran College.
It is anticipated the new sports fields will attract major sporting events such as the new Greater Springfield Marathon Festival next June.
Construction is due for completion in 2019 in time for the commencement of winter sports.
