Playing Fields and School Site

The Ballina Heights playing fields have been extensively planned to comprise all the elements needed for a high quality outdoor sporting facility and are now completed.

The site comprises 8.6ha and will contain both senior and junior cricket ovals with 2 winter sports fields each (soccer, union, league); a clubhouse with covered and outdoor seating; change rooms, ablution facilities and community hall; playground, skate park, BBQ area and parking facilities.

The land has been shaped and contoured to provide elevated views over both sets of fields.

The site will have pedestrian and cycleway links to the surrounding residential areas.

It is also located immediately next to the school site and has easy access to Cumbalum Way and the Pacific Highway.

To the west of the fields, up to the Pacific Highway bypass is a wetland area comprising nearly 9ha, which acts as the stormwater treatment zone for the western side of the development and as a floodway. It will remain naturally vegetated.
