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

Latest news 

Council has awarded the contract for the play area upgrade and new walking path along the northern boundary. Works are scheduled to occur in August / September 2022.  

Please note that there are considerable delays in the supply chain, for materials and equipment, in the construction industry at the moment and to minimise impacts to the community through the loss of a playground, works will only commence once we have confirmation of delivery dates for the shade structure and play equipment.
