An integral part of the Salisbury City Centre revitalisation is the Salisbury Oval Precinct which includes breathing new life into the area. 

The Salisbury Oval is home to a number of thriving sporting and community clubs and is located close to the heart of the City Centre. 

The City of Salisbury developed the Salisbury Oval Master Plan to guide development of the area into a vibrant place for sport, passive recreation, and residential development. 

This will mean things to do for all ages, new outdoor walking trails, improved access to the Salisbury City Centre and a place where residents and visitors will want to spend time.  Construction of the new oval change rooms began in August of this year with concrete footings and slabs finished in October. The next steps are to fully install and erect the structural steel, with internal wall framing, exterior wall cladding and roofing to follow. 

City of Salisbury Mayor Gillian Aldridge OAM said it was anticipated that the change rooms would be complete by the end of the year. 

"It is such an exciting time to be a part of our City with so much activity and development happening everywhere," Mayor Aldridge said. 

"I cannot wait to see the finished change rooms as well as the other elements around the Oval Precinct as it will really cement the area as a high quality integrated precinct that provides a complementary mix of amenities including a premier sporting facility, open space and residential areas which are accessible and have strong links to the Salisbury City Centre and surrounding areas."
