Digman Reserve Master Plan Implementation

Digman Reserve is an important open space area for residents living in Newport. It is mainly used as a sporting reserve however it does also incorporate a dedicated children's play space and is a popular destination for dog walking and other informal activities.

In 2017, following extensive consultation with the resident clubs and local community, Council endorsed the Digman Reserve Master Plan. This Council approved master plan will result in:

  • increased car parking for the reserve
  • a new pavilion for the resident clubs
  • the redevelopment of the eastern and western ovals with the installation of floodlights for increased training capacity and to support a new winter sports tenant
