Dawes Park is in a central location to the community and neighbourhood of Barrack Point and beyond. The park is in the heart of the suburb and boasts a newly upgraded playground, cricket pitch and plenty of shade from mature trees and shelter.
The next step to making the space complete and functional for all community members will be upgrading the slab located on the southeastern side. Take a look at where the upgrade will be taking place in the image below.
The current slab will be replaced and upgraded to a bright, clean and fun sports court ready for all ages and abilities to enjoy. But before we go ahead with this project we want to chat with you about what this might look like and what your preferences for the rest of the court are to make sure we create a space for everyone to enjoy!
Have your say by voting in the section below to let us know what you would most like to see in the space!
There are two sections for you to vote in. The first will be to select the type of court we upgrade the Dawes Park court to. The second is to help select the additional features of the court, so let us know what you would like to see included.
The old tennis court at Dawes Park provided a unique opportunity to establish another recreational space within the reserve. The type of recreational space selected has been informed by customer enquiries and interest from the community regarding an additional basketball facility in the LGA.
The new court aims to be accessible and inclusive for all users. To make it more accessable the court will feature fencing and a smooth and level playing surface.
On-street parking is available along Junction Road, Beach Road and Barrack Avenue. Off-street parking is available on the northern side of the court.
Yes, the toilet block and new pathways are scheduled to be upgraded in 2022. Visit our amenities and footpath upgrade pages for more details.
At this stage, there are no plans to include functional fitness equipment at Dawes Park. We have existing fitness equipment stations located nearby to Dawes Park (see image below) and additionally throughout the LGA.
The court is intended to be a daytime facility and therefore lighting will not be provided.
