It all began with a sports-mad town, tired facilities and the need for a community hub.
Taking the town’s passion for sports and turning it to an economic drawcard, the Port Pirie Sports Precinct was born.
A lot of hard work and good financial management by Port Pirie Regional Council has brought this dream to reality.
Careful consultation with the sporting community has ensured that the Precinct has been thoughtfully constructed to allow a multitude of activities to happen at the same time.
Taking the Precinct to the next level is the addition of the Function Centre, or Community Hub. The Community Hub offers up a range of opportunities for the Precinct, transforming it from a series of combined sporting fields into a major event facility with the ability to strengthen the region’s economy.
With its close proximity to the Northern Festival Centre, the new facilities increase the overall capacity and complement what is already available, opening it up to opportunities for major conferences, expos, trade fairs and events to be hosted in Port Pirie.
The Port Pirie Regional Sports Precinct includes two ovals, two baseball diamonds, a soccer field, a Cricket pitch, a Gymnastics auditorium, three squash courts, a Bowls and Croquet Greens, an indoor pool and paddling pool as well as a multi-function Community Hub and a range of associated facilities.
The Port Pirie Regional Sports Precinct project was officially opened in early 2019.
