Edwardstown Oval, one year on

One year on from completion, Edwardstown Oval has proven to be a valuable asset to the local community.

The project involved a detailed process of engagement, analysis and planning to re-imagine Edwardstown Oval as not only a high quality sporting hub but also a community facility.

WAX Design worked with Swanbury Penglase to deliver a project which provides numerous community uses including football, bowls, cricket and cycling whilst maximising both formal and informal recreation opportunities.

The design builds on the existing context of the Oval, delivering innovative spatial responses that integrate built form and open space; provide multi-function courts, commemorative gardens for the RSL, playspaces; and utilising of existing embankments of the velodrome to create usable open space for the wider community.
