The new multi-use synthetic facility at Jamison Park was officially opened in December 2021. 
The $4 million project forms part of Council’s Sport and Recreation Strategy and was proudly funded by the NSW Government through the Greater Sydney Sports Facility Fund, in association with Penrith City Council and the Nepean Football Association.
The synthetic surface covers an area of 22,000 sqm and includes:
  • two standard football (soccer) fields, which can accommodate eight small sided fields
  • one senior size cricket pitch
  • one AFL oval

Additional features include:

  • Amenities building (toilets only)
  • Drinking fountains
  • Spectator boundary fencing (1.5 m high)
  • LED 100 LUX floodlighting
  • Pathway for ease of access
The modern 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.
In April 2022, construction will begin to install new aluminium tiered bench seating with shade on the eastern and western sides of the fields. Informal sandstone terrace seating will also be installed. 
This work is being funded by the Australian Government in association with Council through the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program.
