Jamison Park Synthetic Facility

Jamison Park Synthetic Facility

The new multi-use synthetic sports facility at Jamison Park is complete and ready to be enjoyed by the whole community.

The $4 million project forms part of Council’s Sport and Recreation Strategy and was proudly funded by the NSW Government in association with Penrith City Council. Nepean Football Association also contributed to this project.

The advanced synthetic surface gives local sporting groups and our community year-round access to a high-quality facility which is more durable than the former turf fields and has the potential to double the weekly capacity of the facility to support increased participation in sport and recreation.

The synthetic surface covers an area of 22,000 sqm and includes:

  • two FIFA standard football (soccer) fields, which can accommodate eight small-sided fields
  • one senior size cricket pitch
  • one AFL oval
  • amenities building (toilets only)
