The Penguin Recreation Ground is currently home to Penguin Football and Cricket Clubs, however, these groups are being relocated to the Dial Regional Sports Complex once construction is completed. The Council is now considering what is the best use for the site and is embarking on a range of comprehensive community engagement activities in order to determine the most appropriate use for the site and prepare a Master Plan to guide future development.

Some preliminary consultation commenced in August 2015 and included forums and a postcard campaign which sought information from the local community on what they thought would be the best use for the Penguin Recreation Ground. The next five months will feature a range of opportunities for the community to build on this previous work and contribute to the development of the Master Plan.

Community participation in this Master Planning process is vital and Council is keen to see strong participation by the community in developing the future vision and use of the Penguin Recreation Ground.

The following sections provides a range of more detailed information about the project and the opportunities to participate in the consultation activities.


The Penguin Recreation Ground Master Plan will be developed progressively over a number of rounds between August and December 2016. Details of concept options and supporting material for each round will be added to this page progressively over coming months. See details below;
