About the project

Activate! Queensland 2019–2029 is the Queensland Government’s 10-year strategy, outlining the new collaborative direction for physical activity and movement in Queensland. Critical to the success of this project is the human centred design strategy. Through an engaging stakeholder and consultation process, Conrad Gargett delivered a responsive site master plan, staging and architectural design that transformed the former Townsville Sports Reserve into a vibrant precinct including:

  • Three indoor multi-purpose courts
  • Indoor rock-climbing wall
  • Accessible change rooms and amenities
  • Sports equipment storage
  • Gym
  • Administration

TSP is welcoming, accessible and responsive to the community aspirations, connecting the Townsville and a broader North Queensland community through this vibrant sports hub. The existing synthetic athletics track, playing fields, conference facilities and grandstand are thoughtfully retained and upgraded, whilst new additions, including the multi-use courts and associated facilities provide greater opportunities for varied community participation and engagement with the precinct.
