Sport, Recreation & Open Space Planning

A strategic plan for sport, recreation and open space

Are you responsible for managing a large portfolio of ageing, dysfunctional and unsustainable sport, recreation and open space facilities, programs and services? Are you juggling competing demands, squeaky wheels, NIMBYs, rapidly growing or declining populations and varied agendas? Then we understand your circumstances.

The need to strategically plan for these facilities, programs and services is essential to shift the focus from reactionary mode to developing positive community development initiatives and contributing to a connected, happy and active community.

By consulting widely, actively engaging the community and key stakeholders, conducting thorough research, and bringing world class thinking to deliver best- fit sport, recreation and open space solutions, your challenges are on the way to being solved.

Tredwell will deliver a fit for purpose, long term strategic plan which prioritises strategies and actions that are adequately resourced, informed by the community and result in collaborative achievements. A high level of graphic presentation and GIS mapping come as standard.


“Tredwell Management have provided a great combination of innovative ideas and practical applications to assist with delivering the Western Adelaide Sporting Facility Supply & Demand Study. The team all have an excellent grasp of recreational trends and creative approaches to solving problems.”
Sam Higgins, Coordinator Open Space and Recreation, City of Charles Sturt
