Junior Oval and Cricket Nets
The Angas Recreation Park will see the installation of 1 new Junior Oval and 4 x new Cricket Nets, to meet Cricket Australia Community Cricket guidelines, including all associated civil and landscaping infrastructure. The Junior Oval provides additional playing surface to relieve pressure on training traffic and game day use for both football and cricket. Junior cricket membership has doubled in five years and growth is expected at club, association and Regional level. The club can meet this growing grassroots participation with availability of a second playing surface, upgraded change rooms and expanded clubrooms. This will also increase the capacity to attract regional events eg country championships, WBBL & demonstration matches etc. Further details of the new clubrooms and changerooms can be found here Angas Recreation Park Clubrooms and Changerooms.
Angas Recreation Park Master Plan
The Angas Recreation Park Masterplan balances the green spaces of the Park with sympathetic development of sport, recreation and multi-use activities.
Key improvements include a junior oval, expanded multi-use clubroom and changeroom facilities and shared Show Hall facilities.
In September and October 2017 Council undertook extensive community consultation. In addition to community and stakeholder engagement, Council hosted open forums and pop-ups at Angaston Show, Tanunda Show, Mount Pleasant Show, Barossa Farmers Market and Angaston Town Hall. The consultation attracted 31 formal submissions and 45 informal submissions.
Council adopted the masterplan, committing to a traffic management plan and landscaping reference group.
