The purpose of the Plan is to support sport and recreation from the grassroots to the elite level by ensuring that the facilities required to achieve this are available to all South Australians. We want to develop facilities of the future that fill current gaps, are accessible, and encourage all South Australians to live an active and healthy lifestyle.
The Plan represents the state’s sport and recreation infrastructure priorities at this point in time, however the document will be nimble and allow for an ongoing pipeline of projects to be developed. The focus of the future is for well-planned, strategic projects that deliver economic, health and tourism benefits for all within the community.
The Plan provides a strategic response to the funding and provision of sport and recreation facilities and feeds into the 20 Year State Infrastructure Plan developed by Infrastructure SA to assist the South Australian Government to plan, identify and prioritise major infrastructure across the State.
