The Gore Hill Indoor Sports Centre (GHISC) represents the second stage of the Gore Hill park redevelopment to address the need for indoor community sport facilities.
In stage 1, the oval was re-oriented to east west to accommodate the requirements of a new indoor sports facility in stage 2. Stage 1 was finalised in March 2019 when the new synthetic oval, clubhouse and playground were opened.
Stage 2 includes the construction of an indoor sports facility, underground parking and integration with the oval.
The project objectives of stage 2 are to deliver an indoor sports facility that:
Stakeholder consultation and research found that demand has outstripped supply for indoor sports facilities for Willoughby and surrounding local government areas and that it’s expected to grow as the population expands. The consultation found that people are not participating in sports because of limited access to facilities.
The new indoor sports centre will help fill a gap in sports facilities in Willoughby and surrounding local government areas.
Scope of current and potential smaller scheme:
- 6 Indoor Courts
- Sports Hall
- Health and Fitness
- Retail Lease Space
Briefing to Council complete.
Investigations on alternative options to deliver the project in the Gore Hill precinct with available capital funding are continuing.
