Dingley Village Sport and Recreation Survey results
Late last year Kingston Council undertook a major community survey regarding the current and future needs for sport and recreations facilities in Dingley.
Almost 5000 residents took part to have their say on key priorities for sport and recreation in the area.
Kingston Council is committed to reporting back to the community regarding the results of consultations undertaken.
Key findings of the Dingley Village Sport and Recreations Survey included:
- A strong need for additional sporting ovals to support the growth of local football clubs.
Update: Kingston Council has approved development of a new two-oval sporting facility in Dingley Village. Council officers are currently investigating three potential sites. Read the media release
- calls for more open space for passive recreation including walking, with overwhelming support to have Spring Road Reserve available for community use.
Update: Council has since opened the Spring Road Reserve as Kingston’s newest park. The site has had extensive weed clearance and new fencing to improve the look and feel of the reserve and make it more welcoming to the community. Later stages of works, as funding becomes available, will include new paths, seating, picnic tables and parking areas. Read the media release.
Council will also conduct community consultation in coming months to determine whether part of the park should be a declared off-lead dog area.
Council thanks all those who took part in the survey. The results will also be considered as part of the ongoing Masterplan to address the long-term needs of the Dingley Village sporting and community groups.
