Greenway Park, Cherrybrook

Background

In May 2018, Julian Leeser MP, Federal Member for Berowra, announced $2.7 million of Federal Government funding for Greenway Park.

The funding will be used to construct the Greenway Community Sports House providing

  • female change rooms
  • shade for spectators
  • improved disability access
  • all-purpose facility for club gatherings and a surface upgrade to the top oval.

This represents the first major works to the sportsground since the facility was established 30 years ago.

Greenway Park is home to nearly 3,000 players and more than 8,000 supporters, being in the heart of the Cherrybrook local sporting community.  Greenway Park has also been home to many Australian champions over the years, including Michelle Jenneke, Kieren Jack and Mark Taylor.

The seven sporting clubs that call Cherrybrook’s Greenway Park home include:

  • Penno Stags Rugby League Club
  • Pennant Hills Senior AFL Club
  • Westbrook Junior AFL Club
  • Greenway Giants Baseball and Softball Club
  • West Pennant Hills and Cherrybrook Cricket Club
  • Cherrybrook Senior and Little Athletics Centre
  • Cherrybrook United Netball Club

Staging of works

The works will be undertaken in two stages being the surface upgrade and the sports house.

  • The surface works has commenced as stage one which will be completed in May 2019.
  • The second stage will involve finalising the sports house design and seeking to obtain development approval.  Construction of the sports house is expected to commence mid-2019.

  • Reshaping and levelling the sportsfield surface to improve game conditions and surface water drainage
  • Installation of a new drainage and irrigation system. Secondary lines for the drainage system will be installed in October 2019 following the completion of winter sports
  • Reconstruction of the baseball diamonds. Final works on the main baseball diamond will be completed by March 2019
  • Re-establishment of the turf surface using Agri-Dark couch, which is a high wearing sports turf.
