Millswood sporting complex upgrades
Millswood Sporting Complex is home to Millswood Bowling Club, Millswood Croquet Club, Millswood Lawn Tennis Club and the South Australian Society for Model and Experimental Engineers (SASMEE). The site also enables public access across the Belair train line to Goodwood Road, and there is also a small parcel of land for public recreation, commonly used for dog exercise.
Located at Millswood Crescent, Millswood, Council has been working with all clubs since the development of an Improvement Plan for the site in 2014. Since this time, Council has investigated options for the development of a fourth croquet lawn and relocation of the bowling greens, a possible synthetic bowling green and improved car parking and public access.
Following consultation with clubs and growth in bowls participation, Council decided not to proceed with these options, but to investigate improvements for the croquet club including lighting and a new club house.
At its meeting on 27 November 2017, Council received the draft design proposals for the croquet club building and surrounds, and allocated $260K in its long term budget for this project. The club has also committed $50K of its own money to the project. Council are continuing work on the concept plans to reduce the estimated cost and achieve a workable outcome for all parties.
In December 2017, the croquet club officially opened its new flood lighting for all 3 croquet lawns.
Council are also continuing to work with the lawn tennis club and SASMEE regarding ongoing improvements and increasing use at their sites.
