Parks & Recreation
Health & wellbeing at the forefront
There are so many things to do in Atherstone, where a wealth of outdoor and recreational amenities support a fun and fulfilling life. Whether you’re exercising, enjoying the great outdoors with family and friends or taking a tranquil walk beneath the trees, living amongst nature is always a joy. More than a quarter of Atherstone is dedicated to green open space, with extensive hike and bike trails and more than eight hectares of picturesque waterways and wetlands. That’s in addition to Cobblebank Stadium, the region’s largest dedicated sports precinct as well as the numerous parks, picnic spots, nature reserves and playgrounds designed to delight visitors of all ages and abilities.
Cobblebank Stadium is the region’s largest dedicated sports precinct scheduled to open late 2021. A $31 million project, the stadium features six indoor high-ball courts, flexible meeting and social spaces, kiosk and seating areas and over 400 car parking spaces, set to be a thriving health and wellness hub for the Atherstone community. The stadium has been designed to maximise natural light, minimise energy consumption, use environmentally sustainable materials, and use renewable energy. Located on corner Ferris and Bridge Roads, Cobblebank.
