Find out about the exciting new facilities at the Sports Hub, including a netball centre, a community park with a nature-based theme and an outdoor event space with a natural amphitheatre. Visit Pimpama Sports Hub.

Pimpama Sports Hub is coming to the northern Gold Coast. With the population expected to more than double by 2036, the City is gearing up to provide a range of sporting and social infrastructure to existing and future residents.

Our goal is to make the northern Gold Coast one of the most liveable and desirable areas of the Gold Coast. We are committed to delivering this sporting and community hub so it can become a place for residents and visitors to engage in social, cultural, recreational and educational activities like never before.

The phase one facilities are completed. View the drone video footage of phase one.

Pimpama Sports Hub occupies a 14-hectare site on the corner of Rifle Range and Bull Roads.

It will provide a state-of-the-art aquatic centre with Olympic-standard swimming pool, much-needed netball and tennis facilities, and recreational and sporting options for surrounding schools and residents. Multipurpose meeting spaces and a large events park for gatherings such as Carols by Candlelight, markets and outdoor cinema, will also form part of the precinct.

Design

  • The approved master plan is a balanced mix of community, aquatic, sport and recreational facilities. The master plan is flexible to initiate change as participation trends change over time.
  • The bushland aesthetic will be enhanced with walking trails, community parks and a natural watercourse while retaining 30% of the vegetation.
  • This new contemporary destination will include a combination of solar power, battery storage and co-generation systems. The solar power system is 910KW, the battery is 316kWh and the cogeneration system will use natural gas to generate both power and thermal energy to heat the pools. These systems will provide power to operate the site.
  • On completion there will be internal and external CCTV cameras for security and safety.

Construction

Main construction commenced in December 2019.

  • We're working closely with the contractor to minimise any impacts to traffic flow. Temporary road closures may occur intermittently to allow for oversized haulage vehicles to deliver materials to the site.
  • The contractor appointed to deliver Pimpama Sports Hub will undertake all works within legislated guidelines to manage noise and dust.
  • Construction activity is only expected to create low to medium noise.
  • Most site access is via the contractor’s construction compound off Bull Road, opposite Oakwood Street and Middleton Street and the new signalised, Rifle Range Road intersection in the completed phase one facilities.
  • There will be no construction parking on Bull Road or Rifle Range Road. All vehicles will be accommodated on site.

Access

During construction

Public access to the completed phase one facilities – netball centre, events space and community park – is via the new signalised Rifle Range Road intersection. Parking is available near the netball centre.

Construction fencing has been erected around the phase 2 construction zone for the safety of all members of the public.

The main construction site compound and contractor parking is accessed off Bull Road opposite Oakwood Street. This access is temporary for the duration of the construction only. Contractors occasionally walk along Bull Road to access the construction site. Residents are reminded to slow down and take extra care when travelling through the area. There is also construction access via the new Rifle Range Road intersection.

On completion

A new signalised intersection on Rifle Range Road will be the public entry to the site. The new intersection will manage the increased traffic entering and exiting the facility and ensure the safety of all patrons and road users. The intersection also services the South Coast Restoration Society at the rear of the sports hub.

There will be no public vehicular entry from Bull Road. The only vehicles accessing the facility from Bull Road will be to service the aquatic centre.

Jobs

More than 750,000 people annually are projected to utilise the hub. It will provide 409 jobs during construction and contribute more than $161 million into the local economy. Once operational, it will generate more than 42 jobs. Job opportunities will range from pool lifeguard, hospitality, venue management to hub operations and maintenance. There is still a lot to do before these operational jobs are available.

Anyone looking for construction job opportunities or business owners who would like to become a trade suppliers can contact ADCO Constructions Pty Ltd.

When the facility is close to opening in late 2021, please check the City of Gold Coast eRecruit site for any employment opportunities in the sports hub.

Transport

The City's investment in this major community project, as well as numerous transport improvements, is designed to make a real difference to everyday lives of residents, now and into the future. Over the next 4 years, we will be spending an unprecedented amount on roads and active transport in the northern Gold Coast corridor.

As part of the hub, a new signalised intersection has been built on Rifle Range Road to help manage traffic flow and provide safe entry and exit to Pimpama Sports Hub.

View the Transport Strategy mid-life review to find out more about the road network improvements.

The City will also continue to assist the Queensland and Australian Governments to:

  • expand the Gold Coast’s northern transport system to include additional rail stations, bus services and major road upgrades
  • plan for the Coomera Connector.
