Park 21W Re-development

Following commencement of our lighting project in 2021, the next major phase of the club redevelopment is the construction of a new community sporting pavilion at our home in Park 21W (Mirnu Wirra).

Today (9/1/2022) we are very excited to announce we have been awarded a $1.5m grant from the Office of Recreation, Sport & Racing.  This contribution, together with additional funds already secured or nearly secured, means that we can progress the final stages of planning, design, costing and approvals immediately, and proceed with confidence to construction.  Although there is a lot more work to do, and challenges to face, we anticipate construction commencing during the second half of 2022 and completion before the 2023 winter season!

This funding represents a critical milestone for ALSC, and is the beginning of a new, exciting phase for the club.

More information will be provided soon, and regular project updates will commence in 2022.  In the meantime, tell your friends and family and get on board and involved this year!

The appalling state of our existing facilities, together with the increasing demand, means the overall redevelopment project is significant:

  • Stage 1 Lighting the entire northern playing field area - 6 new poles, 31 new LED lights, and future proofing for potential night cricket.
  • Stage 2 Building new two story club rooms - multiple change rooms, balcony viewing, social area, significantly more storage space.
  • Stage 3 Re-positioned playing fields with new irrigation to enable multiple football, soccer, cricket and smaller sized fields for other sports like Ultimate Frisbee, AFL 9's etc.
  • Stage 4 A range of associated landscaping and public amenities, pathways, cricket nets.

Planning commenced over 5 years ago, and has successfully resulted in:

  • Endorsement from the Adelaide City Council (a feat in itself)
  • Preliminary agreement on terms for a long term lease
  • Completion of preliminary cost estimates and commencement of detailed construction planning
  • Funding commitments from several partners eg Adelaide City Council, Adelaide Community Sports and Recreation Association (formerly Adelaide Lutheran Sports and Recreation Association) and the SA Flying Disc Association

Stage 1 (budget $548,000) must be well progressed by mid-2021 in order to immediately expand the junior and senior football usage, and allow the fields to be used by a wide range of community groups. The ability to demonstrate expanded usage will meet the expectations of current and future funders and provide critical momentum for subsequent stages.

We need your support to help the Club contribute a sum of $95,000 so that Stage 1 continues and the whole project can become a reality.

Please donate today to help secure the future of your Club and create your own legacy!
