Springfield Central Sporting Complex
AAA-LUX LED lighting at impressive new sports facilities!
Lush, green fields and netball courts await thousands of Ipswich sportspeople – both players and supporters – with the opening of the $56 million Springfield Central Sporting Complex.
Designed by global infrastructure, environmental and social development company Cardno, the 22.5-hectare sporting precinct located on Sportstar Drive, Springfield Central, includes 16 netball courts, eight tennis courts, four multi-purpose sporting fields, three club houses with canteens/amenities, two playgrounds and ample car parking.
Ipswich City Council will manage the facilities and has signed lease agreements with local sporting clubs such as Springfield United and Western Pride football clubs, Springfield Lakes and South West Wildcats netball clubs, Greater Springfield Sports (AFL and cricket) and Rugby League Ipswich.
Smart features like LED lighting have been installed to ensure no shadows appear on the fields and courts, while 2000 recycled plastic bollards have been used as barriers to car zones. There will be about 600 car park available.
