The proposed Boyne Tannum Sports Park is about 30 hectares in total area, located between the Tannum Sands sewerage treatment plant and the western edge of the Pacific Ranch Estate. As the crow flies, it is about 2.4km from the Tannum Sands High School.
Stage One of the development will see a purpose built athletics oval including a field event area. This track is grass but the potential for a tartan track exists if funding becomes available in the future. A full-size hockey field will be accommodated inside the running track and the area will be serviced by a kiosk, toilets and storage facilities. It is the intention of Stage One to include flood lighting over the oval.
Further stages include the development of three full-size lit soccer fields constructed and serviced by a large amenities building. The amenities building will incorporate players' change rooms, male, female and disability access toilets, canteen/kitchen area, referees and first aid facilities.
Shade and seating areas are included.
It is proposed that the access road will be sealed, leading to an unsealed central car park. This car park would receive solar lighting and could be fully sealed in future stages.
Appropriate drainage, turf/landscaping and irrigation is planned throughout the site.
Council believes that with careful planning and consultation the Boyne Tannum Sports Park has the potential to be a true regional sporting facility, accommodating the needs of the community for many years to come.
