Redfern Park’s $32 million facelift opened up the area around the playing field to provide much-needed open space.
The aim of the oval refurbishment was to provide sporting, athletic and recreational opportunities for a broad range of community, school and sporting groups.
The South Sydney Rabbitohs were an integral part of the overall project. The upgrade guaranteed a professional level training ground for the team, together with facilities such as change rooms, a weights room, meeting room and storage.
It now allows a limited number of pre-season and exhibition matches, with perimeter fencing to protect the field.
The City of Sydney manages the new facility for the whole community and provides a high level of maintenance to ensure quality control of the training field.
