Council is transforming the Fairfield Showground into a modern sporting and cultural hub for high level sports, community cultural festivals and major events.
The redevelopment is opening the Showground up to the community by providing facilities and programs relevant to the community while being regional significant.
The festival arena and covered festival space, as well as the turf and synthetic football fields are now completed. This included lighting upgrades to 750 lux with the capacity to upgrade to 1750 lux at a later date.
The multi purpose amenities building, Walk of Memory engraved pavers and installation of a People's Globe is complete, celebrating our City's multicultural heritage at the main entrance to the Showground on Smithfield Road.
Work will continue in the coming months on installing paths and lighting around the complex, as well as preparing for the creation of a fun, new playground and splash play area for children of all abilities at Deerbush Park.
The new playground will feature a flying fox, wheelchair-accessible carousel and ground-level trampolines. A new water play space with squirters and dumping buckets will also provide the perfect place for young children to cool off in the warmer months.
The playground will also include an accessible riverbed crossing, water pump, sand digger, picnic tables and bench seating, a climbing net fort and slide, sandpit, nest swing and voice tubes. A riding track will weave around and between the various play elements, providing a safe space for young children to learn to ride.
There will be outdoor gym equipment for adults, while trees and landscaping will provide shade and environmental benefits. The park is being upgraded as part of the transformation of Fairfield Showground with construction underway.
