Shape The Future of Barkly Park

Corowa-based Architects, Regional Design Service have been engaged by Committee members of the Rutherglen Football, Netball and Cricket Clubs to undertake a Strategic Masterplanning exercise.

The project seeks to identify and capitalise on the idyllic rural location, historical ties to the existing site and vision of younger Members for the precinct’s future - through the development of an Architectural Masterplan.

The Masterplan's aim is to:

  • Identify and document buildings, fields, courts structures, landmarks and places of interest in and around the existing Barkly Park precinct,  Rutherglen

  • Explore and develop initiatives for the conservation, refurbishment, re-purposing or replacement of buildings, structures, sports fields, courts, amenities and landscaping elements

  • Map and analyse vehicular and pedestrian paths and roadways in and around the precinct

  • Explore and develop Visitor Experience opportunities, such as the inclusion of better spectator facilities, children’s play areas, parking etc.

  • Explore and develop new Membership experiences -such as sponsored elements of the design to assist with fundraising, after hours access to gyms etc.

  • Explore, attract and develop the inclusion of new sports to the precint

  • Investigate and develop opportunities for other Community groups to use elements of the facility, eg:

    • Children’s Playgroups

    • Health and fitness groups eg Yoga,  Tai-Chi etc

    • Business and Community groups booking the space for meeting,  conferences etc.
