It was a privilege to officially open our first sports reserve in North Kellyville, Samantha Riley Drive, alongside our local community.
There was a massive community turnout for the occasion where the Rouse Hill Rhinos Junior Rugby League Club put on a BBQ, the Kellyville Supersonics Sports Club provided Cricket activities and residents enjoyed free gelato, hot drinks and face painting.
The site has come a long way since I first inspected it and saw the first earthworks. The finished product looks absolutely incredible and I would like to thank the staff and contractors for their hard work.
- Four multi-purpose rectangular natural turf sports fields that can also be reconfigured into two cricket ovals;
- A basketball half court;
- Two practice cricket nets;
- A local playground;
- Picnic facilities;
- An amenities building with accessible toilets, change rooms, kiosk, referee room and storage;
- Onsite carpark with 200 spaces; and
- Concrete shared loop pathway around the fields.
Samantha Riley Drive Reserve is a truly magnificent sports complex and I’m looking forward to seeing it utilised by the North Kellyville in the years ahead.
