Primrose Park

Council is planning to reconfigure Primrose Park to add an additional full sized playing field and new amenities block.

Primrose Park currently has three playing fields running horizontally and shared by both soccer and football sporting codes during Autumn/Winter and cricket during Spring/Summer.

The proposed design for Primrose Park would retain two of the sporting fields and reconfigure the eastern end (water’s edge) of the park to include a soccer field, permanent cricket pitch, and a rugby field. It also gives space for a new amenities block.

North Sydney Mayor Zoë Baker said it is no secret that there is a shortage of sports fields on the north shore.

“Weekend sport is an important part of many people’s health and wellbeing in our community,” Cr Baker said.

“The population of North Sydney has doubled over the last 40 years and as a result demand for recreation spaces is at an all-time high. Local sporting clubs and schools have been asking Council to provide more access to playing fields because they simply don’t have anywhere to play. Proposals like this allow Council to maximise the space we have to allow more people to play sport.”

An additional sports field will allow us to offer more training hours for clubs and schools, as well as additional weekend games.

Independent modelling has found that there is sufficient parking and adequate roads to handle the impact of the additional field, both for training during the week and on weekend for competition games.

The community can provide feedback on the proposed concept design from 8 March to 18 April 2023 at

All feedback received during the consultation period will be reported to Council together with the final concept plan for adoption.
