Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Glandore Oval is a key multi-purpose sports and recreation facility located at the north-eastern end of the Council boundary. The facility is home to the Adelaide Cricket Club (the Club) and Westminster Old Scholars Football Club and the site is also used by Scouts, the Black Forrest Primary School and other groups. The site is also largely used by the local community for social and recreational use. |

At the General Council Meeting held on the 23 March 2021, Council approved the development of new cricket training facilities and an open space lawn area at Glandore Oval, as well as changes to the rose garden area to create more lawned open space and relocation of the Ian Stoeckel Memorial to Edwardstown Oval.

Following comments from local residents a community meeting was held on Thursday 6 May 2021 at the Glandore Oval, attended by the Mayor, Ward Members and staff to provide details on the project and to hear the local resident's concerns. Council heard from residents that they have a number of ideas and suggestions for the Glandore Oval precinct, so it was agreed at the meeting that a broader community consultation process would occur.

An initial consultation on site development options was completed in June 2021. Council reviewed the community feedback at the 22 June 2021 General Council meeting. At the meeting Council approved the development of a new cricket training facility at Glandore Oval, retain a portion of the rose garden with the balance of the area upgraded to include a new lawned space, a park bench, and planting of tree foliage along the boundary of South Road (GC210622R07).

The final concept for the rose garden was endorsed by Council in September 2021 that includes an updated rose garden design, a bench with trees to provide shade, paths and upgraded irrigation. They also include a grassed area where the community can relax or kick a ball.

Works commenced in December 2021 on the cricket training facilities and are planned to be completed by end of March 2022.

The rose garden will be redeveloped in May and June of 2022.

A separate project is also occurring on the Glandore Oval precinct across March and April 2022.

The old lighting towers will be replaced with new 25m high towers with energy efficient LED light fittings that can more evenly distribute lighting across the oval and reduce light spill to neighbouring properties.

The new lighting will achieve AFL guideline lux levels.

Work begins on 15 March and is expected to be completed by mid-April 2022.

  • Update - Hive of activity at Glandore Oval (​10 March 2022 )

    Glandore Oval will be a hive of activity next week with civil works for new lighting and preparation work for the planned cricket pitches getting underway as part of the City of Marion’s approved redevelopment of the precinct.

    In addition, the State Department of Infrastructure and Transport (DIT) will be collecting soil and groundwater data for the Torrens to Darlington (T2D) Project, the final piece of the multi-billion-dollar North-South Corridor.

    This work involves borehole drilling in a section of the grounds over two weeks and is not related to the Council’s work within the oval precinct.

    DIT works will be conducted between 7am and 5pm, and fencing will be installed to prevent public access.

    This fencing will be condensed after hours. Driveway access at locations adjacent to the drilling will be maintained for the duration of the work.

    Meanwhile, on March 15 Council contractors are scheduled to start civil works for the new AFL-compliant lighting towers at the oval.

    The old towers are being replaced with new, 25m high structures with energy-efficient LED light fittings that will evenly distribute light across the oval and reduce light spill into neighbouring properties.

    These works are expected to be finished by mid-April, at the end of the cricket season and the beginning of the football season for the Westminster Old Scholars Football Club.

    Workforce and material delays have prevented this section of the precinct upgrade from being completed any earlier.

    Work is also starting next week on constructing the new turf cricket pitches.

    Site access via Alpha Industries is scheduled to close on March 18. Light vehicles will access the site primarily around the oval with entry via Margaret Street or Naldeera Street.

    Work is expected to be completed by the end of March with the redevelopment of the rose garden scheduled to begin at the end of April.

    The rose garden design has been updated with a bench, trees, paths, upgraded irrigation and a grassed area for informal community recreation.

    Details about the exact number of rose bushes being removed and relocated are still being finalised but the Black Forest Primary School will be offered up to 10 bushes and any remaining bushes will be made available to the public.
