Stage 2 of Samford Parklands is Open!

To celebrate the completion of the second stage at the Samford Parklands Moreton Bay Regional Council in partnership with the Samford Rangers Football Club will hosted a sporting family fun day on Saturday, February 11.

The completion of the new senior and junior soccer fields, two practice areas, lighting and the restoration of the site’s historic Cash family home into a club house comes hot on the heels of the facility’s first stage development which was only completed two years ago.

Mayor Allan Sutherland and Division 11 councillor Bob Millar invited residents to join in the celebrations from 11am to 2pm at the new soccer precinct along Mount Samson Road.

“It’s sure to be a great family day out and a chance to witness first hand the transformation that’s been quietly evolving over the past year at Samford Parklands,” Mayor Sutherland said.

“This is a significant investment in Division 11 to cater for the Samford Valley’s growing sporting community.

“What’s about to be opened to the public is more than just parkland – it’s the second stage of a new sporting facility with enormous potential to host a wide range of recreational activities in future stages of our redevelopment plans.”

Saturday’s festivities at the Samford Parklands begin with a sausage sizzle fundraiser before the official opening at 11am and free entertainment including games and a jumping castle for the kids, before a parachuting soccer player drops in on the afternoon’s activities.

Cr Millar said the completion would kick-off a whole new era for the sporting facility which was continuing to grow.

“This second stage continues to lay the foundations for what we anticipate will become for many people a one-stop-shop for sport and recreation,” Cr Millar said.

“What has been achieved at the parklands, also what’s in store for the future is something that I’m very excited about, having lived and breathed the needs of the Samford Rangers Football Club for many years.”

“I hope facilities like the Samford Parklands will be catalyst for more of us in the Moreton Bay region to seize the initiative for a healthier lifestyle and sign up for a team, or commit to making recreation part of our daily routine.”
