Open Space and Recreation Infrastructure Asset Management Plan


Council is now reviewing the feedback received from the community on the draft Asset Management Plan to prepare a report to Council. Everyone who submitted feedback will be advised of the report to Council.

The City of Charles Sturt is responsible for managing Council’s Open Space and Recreation assets on behalf of its community, which includes irrigation, playgrounds, sporting accessories (such as skate parks, courts and basketball hoops), fences, walls and bollards and park furniture, with an estimated renewal cost of over $60 million.

These assets are valued by our community as they support physical activity, social interaction, play, an appreciation and understanding of the environment and a sense of place.

To ensure these assets are managed appropriately, Council has endorsed a Draft Open Space and Recreation Infrastructure Asset Management Plan to guide the upgrade, renewal and maintenance of the assets over the next 10 years.

What is the Draft Open Space and Recreation Infrastructure Asset Management Plan?

The Open Space and Recreation Infrastructure Asset Management Plan sets out the requirements for Council to best manage our Open Space and Recreation assets to an accepted level of service as well as to ensure it meets the current and future needs of the community. The document covers a 10 year period and maps out the renewal, upgrade and maintenance expenditure for this period, as well as key upgrade projects.

What does Council spend on Open Space and Recreation Infrastructure?

  • Renewal - $2.67 million per annum
  • Upgrade - $924K per annum
  • Maintenance and Operations – $1.55 million per annum

What are the key projects included in the draft Plan?

The Draft Open Space and Recreation Infrastructure Asset Management Plan was developed in consideration of Council’s Open Space Strategy 2025. Whilst a range of renewal projects have been identified across the City of Charles Sturt, the larger upgrade projects identified in the draft Plan for the next 5 years included:

  • Henley and Grange Memorial Oval, Henley Beach
  • Collins Reserve, Kidman Park
  • Pedlar Reserve, Seaton
  • Tedder Reserve, Flinders Park

Where can I get more information?

The consultation period will close on Friday 10 May.
