Baulkham Hills, NSW

This sports major facility which adjoins Hills Centenary Sports Reserve was designed as the home ground for local AFL, but the field also caters for summer cricket. The reserve includes purpose-built sports amenities, community facilities and terraced seating areas. Features have been designed to encourage social interaction and after-game use through the considered location of kiosks, BBQ and picnic areas.

The venue also includes a large water-sensitive designed car park, passive open space, and a circuit cycle path and warm-up track.
