Maitland Regional Athletics Centre To Officially Open

The finish line is in sight for the construction of the Maitland Regional Athletics Centre, at the Maitland Regional Sports Complex, with an official opening date of Monday 12 October.

The $10.5 million project was joint funded by Council and Restart NSW Hunter Infrastructure and Investment Fund, and includes a World Athletics Certified synthetic athletics track, playing field, track and field facilities, floodlighting, a grandstand with capacity of 560, changerooms, canteen, two large function spaces and car parking.

Mayor Loretta Baker says ‘one of the key objectives of Council is to ensure that our growing community has the facilities and services it needs.

This facility is a welcome addition to the high quality sporting options already available in the city.

‘From hosting local clubs and school athletics to drawing major athletics events to the area like zone and regional carnivals, we’re so excited to see the benefits of this facility for the community.’

Catherine Cusack, Parliamentary Secretary for the Hunter, today said ‘we’re really pleased to see this new project come to fruition.

The Maitland Regional Sports Complex now provides recreational facilities for all people in the wider community, including children, youth and athletes alike.

‘The Maitland Regional Sports Complex was awarded $5.5 million under the NSW Government’s Hunter Infrastructure Investment Fund and will now attract more visitors to the Hunter region, with enhanced event capabilities, complete access for people with disabilities and increasing visitor spending in the region.’

Once open, Council will work with local and regional sporting groups to educate them on the many unique features of the site with access for the general public planned to commence in time for summer walks and exercise with family and friends.

The completion of the Maitland Regional Athletics Centre is stage two of the total three stages of the wider Maitland Regional Sports Complex redevelopment. Stage three of the redevelopment includes a walking track, new playground, outdoor exercise facilities and additional amenities.

Construction is expected to be completed by 2021.
