The call for Registrations of Interest for the 2020 Winter Season has concluded. Please take the opportunity to return to this page for more information on the call for Registrations of Interest for the 2020 Summer season.

We recently sought Registrations of Interest (ROI) from sporting organisations and educational institutions for the use of Victoria Park / Pakapakanthi Sports facilities during the 2020 Winter Season (1 April – 30 September 2020).

Registrations closed 5.00 pm, 31 January 2020 with allocations confirmed in February 2020.


Update: 6 May 2020

Nine applications were received

The main applicants were identified as priority based on their assessment scores; we were able negotiate with the remaining applicants, which allowed us to accommodate eight of the nine applications in some form.

Successful applicants were notified of the outcome of their application. Hire agreements were to be available for ten or twenty weeks/games/races commencing in April 2020. Final agreements were almost in place when all activity was postponed due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. Council will honour these agreements for the remainder of the winter season, once they are able to commence.


ROI Information and Background

Please see the Application pack for details of the facilities that are available, including location and costs of hire. The pack also contains the Registration of Interest Form that will need to be completed and returned to us.

All requests for formal use of the premium sports field, criterium track and southern sports fields need to be submitted as part of this registration process. Any additional requests outside of this process will be treated as a casual booking, subject to availability and charged accordingly.

For safety reasons, the premium field will not be programmed at the same time as the criterium track.

On occasion, there will be ad-hoc event requests for use of Victoria Park / Pakapakanthi which will impact use of facilities. Due to the number of events, only ten-week agreements will be available for the premium sports field.

Events already confirmed mean the premium sports field will be unavailable on the following dates:

Adelaide 500 Declared Major Event Zone until 10 April 2020

17 May 2020 RSPCA Million Paws Walk

13-14 June 2020, International Pedal Prix

25-26 July 2020, International Pedal Prix

7 August 2020, Walk a Mile in My Boots

30 August 2020, Vision Challenge

Background

A strategic aim of the City of Adelaide is to enhance the role of the Park Lands in increasing levels of physical activity and well-being through formal and informal sport and recreation opportunities.

To support this aim a Master Plan for the usage of Victoria Park was developed and adopted in 2008 with the vision to ‘create a vibrant, flexible and sustainable recreational open space within the iconic Adelaide Park Lands to serve all South Australians, supporting a variety of community activities whilst preserving the unique landscape and heritage qualities of the place.’

The Master Plan included an extension to the Criterium track, the creation of the Premium Sports Field to facilitate a variety of events from Adelaide 500 and 3-day Horse event to sporting matches and carnivals and the creation of a series of sports fields to the south of the park. These facilities are now complete and available for use.

In April 2017 Council endorsed the construction of a new change room and public toilet facility to support the use of the Victoria Park southern sports facilities. The new facility is now open and available for hire.
