Work is underway on the brand-new Samantha Riley Drive Reserve in North Kellyville.
Heavy earthmoving machinery is now onsite and carrying out bulk earthworks on the two sports fields located in the eastern portion of the Reserve.
“It’s terrific to see how much work has been completed in just a matter of weeks,” Mayor of The Hills Shire, Dr Peter Gangemi said.
“This is a fantastic project that will benefit residents of North Kellyville and sporting groups in the Shire, and I’m proud that we can deliver this facility for our growing North Kellyville community.
“This demonstrates our commitment to providing more open space facilities in North Kellyville, and supporting healthy and active lifestyles.
“I’m looking forward to residents using this new facility in the near future,” Mayor Gangemi added.
Once complete, the new North Kellyville Reserve will include four multi-purpose turf sports fields that can also be reconfigured into two ovals, along with an amenities building with accessible toilets, change rooms, kiosk, referee room and storage, as well as an onsite 200 space carpark.
The facility will also include cricket practice nets, shared pathways, a children’s playground with picnic settings and a basketball half court.
The project is expected to be completed by the second half of 2023, weather dependent.
