This consultation has concluded.

Welcome to the information hub for the design of the redevelopment of Bolton Park Stadium and construction of a new indoor court facility at the Exhibition Centre. This project will result in two community facilities that will serve the City of Wagga Wagga for many years to come.

In March 2013, Council resolved to approve the delivery of a three court development at the Exhibition Centre together with a PCYC development at Bolton Park. The project was allocated a $12.67M budget, including just over $2M of partnership funding from PCYC and Wagga Netball.

With a fixed budget, we have to make choices based on preference and priority, while aknowledging what impact increasing emphasis in one area has on other areas of the project.

During the design phase, Council consulted with 32 separate groups and organisations, as well as encouraged comment from the general community on the design layouts and possible inclusions. Based on feedback recieved, at the October and November 2013 Council Meetings Council was able to determine the final design layouts for both sites.

The next steps will involve Council lodging a development application and request for tender to construct the two facilities.

    It is the goal of the proposed PCYC extension of the Bolton Park Stadium Site and the three court development at the Exhibition Centre to provide significant benefits to the Wagga Wagga community. These include:

    • A unique vision for each facility - community, recreational, special events and smaller sports usage at Bolton Park and sport and special event usage at the Exhibition Centre
    • Complements the recreational precinct at Bolton Park and the sport and events precinct at the Exhibition Centre
    • Allows for a diverse range of usage with five courts accommodating all user groups including basketball, netball, PCYC, existing BPSS users and growth opportunities
    • Results in the renewal of the ageing BPSS and provides future proofing by allowing for an increase in the number of courts as the population grows
    • Provides sports compliant facilities (ie run-offs, court sizes, lighting etc) which currently do not exist at Bolton Park
    • Facilitates financial contributions from both PCYC and Wagga Wagga Netball and minimises both capital and any potential operational costs to Council
    • Provides a contemporary design and the opportunity to attract regional and state based events

    Council has set the following broad design guidelines for the project:

    • The project is a two site development – Bolton Park and Exhibition Centre
    • Bolton Park Site development to include facilities for PCYC and business event space
    • Exhibition Centre Site development to be a three indoor court facility with exhibition/event capacity.

    Council is committed to incorporating feedback from the community into the project. With a fixed budget, it is important to make the right decisions about what areas of the project to place greater emphasis on, and how that impacts on other areas.  

    During the design process, we are seeking your feedback on the following design elements of this important community project:
