Proposed Stonehenge Reserve Courts Upgrade

Consultation now closed


This consultation has now closed. Thank you to everyone who has provided their feedback. Our project team will now review all comments received and produce a consultation report. Keep an eye on this site for updates.


Project details

We are exploring the feasibility of upgrading Stonehenge Reserve to provide new and upgraded recreation and associated facilities. This includes two new courts, upgrades to car parking, stormwater drainage, clubhouse facilities and lighting.

This aligns closely with our Sport & Recreation Strategy with regard to exploring ‘best use’ and positive community outcomes for Stonehenge and other sites in the region.

We look forward to your feedback so we can develop a solution that enables, Tennis, Petanque, Netball and the local community to thrive together while continuing to value this special part of the Adelaide Hills.


Quick project facts

  • The project proposes to accommodate netball, tennis and petanque
  • The proposal includes upgrading the site from six to eight courts
  • It’s proposed for three netball courts to be overlaid over four existing tennis courts with line marking and that these courts would become the home courts for the Stirling Comets Netball Club
  • Netball would be played between April and August for a season of fifteen weeks of “home and away” competition
  • Weekday training commences late March until early September
  • Netball competition would not interfere with Petanque or tennis competition
  • Access to all surrounding properties would be maintained
  • Car parking, clubhouse and stormwater management would be upgraded


What we have done

  • A high-level review of recreation facilities across the Adelaide Hills Council area. This is ongoing
  • A preliminary master planning process for the Stonehenge Reserve site
  • Four options have been considered for Stonehenge Reserve
  • Preliminary site assessments have been undertaken including: traffic, parking and stormwater
  • Initial conversations with residents and sporting groups have taken place and will continue
  • A community briefing was held to provide a project update and hear feedback from the local community


Early engagement

Current conversations with residents and community groups have highlighted the following for consideration:

  • Resident access
  • Traffic
  • Pedestrian safety
  • Parking
  • Stormwater
  • Noise
  • Lighting
  • Trees on site
  • Bushfire risk
  • Other locations


Next steps

  • Continuing community consultation on the four master plan options with residents, property holders, businesses and sporting clubs
  • Further transport and environmental assessments
  • Ongoing recreation facilities assessment across the Council area including Heathfield, Piccadilly, Upper Sturt and Stirling East
  • Analysis of all feedback received
  • Development of a consultation report for the Council’s consideration as part of the final decision-making process
