Port Pirie Sports Precinct


Council has been working to a budget of $15 million for this project on the basis of the State Government providing $5 million as part of its election commitment to the Member for Frome, Council's successful application to the Australian Government for $5 million under the National Stronger Regions Fund and Council's own contribution of $5 million by way of loan borrowings. 

Current documentation:




Council is proposing to build a multi-purpose sportingfacility at the Memorial Oval Sports Precinct, Port Pirie. This project will facilitate the rationalisation of playing surfaces in Port Pirie, provide significantly upgraded facilities to replace the current ageing infrastructure, accommodate multiple sports, and will help to rejuvenate the CBD by bringing more sports to the centre of town. 

The proposed redevelopment in its simplest form will achieve the following:

  • A Memorial Oval Precinct (incorporating Pirie West Oval) which will accommodate the existing sports of football, cricket and baseball; as well as relocating existing sports from Globe Oval and the Savoy Soccer Club. This includes the expansion of the Pirie West Oval, realignment of Memorial Oval; new lighting to both ovals; redevelop the existing grandstand; new change rooms, canteen and toilets; together with a function centre and viewing facilities.
  • A Port Pirie Swimming Pool Precinct with a new amenities block and also accommodating gymnastics, squash and potentially others in a multi-purpose facility.
  • Decommissioning Globe Oval and disposal, except for a portion to be retained as open green space and a passive recreation area.
