Sporting facilities in Adelaide

When it comes to sporting and recreation facilities, we’re spoilt for choice here in Adelaide. The City of Adelaide provides over 207 hectares of sporting open space, suitable for all sports, ages and abilities.

Choose from our leased and licenced facilities or general access facilities.

Leased and licenced facilities

Council manages many of the sports facilities through licences and leases held by groups such as educational institutions and not-for-profit recreation and sport organisations. 

Once licenced, the group manages the hire, subletting and maintenance of the facility.

To hire or sublet a facility or to get information about the club or association, please contact them directly.

Subletting opportunities 

If you're a current lease/licence holder and want to sublet your facility, please submit a Park Lands Sport & Rec subletting application.

Lessees and licence holders must follow the Adelaide Park Lands Licencing and Leasing Policy.

General access facilities

There are also a range of facilities open for use to the general public all year round. Sporting clubs, associations or fitness professionals can still book the facilities for closed events (fees may apply), but they are generally free for all to use.

Located in North Adelaide, this small oval is ideal for your corporate get together or a “come and try” activity. The oval contains a hard wicket cricket pitch, AFL goals and hockey goals. Booking fees apply.
