Pimpama will soon be home to one of the largest sport and recreation precincts of its kind on the Gold Coast, with construction kicking off on an $8.5 million parkland at Gainsborough Greens.
The new 15 hectare precinct is expected to include two full-size AFL fields along with a playground, picnic and sporting amenity, and is anticipated to be fully-operational by mid year (2018).
The facility is being developed by Mirvac, as part of its Gainsborough Greens master planned community, and is part of 32 hectares of parkland being dedicated by the developer to Council.

Queensland Residential General Manager, Warwick Bible said the new sport and recreation park has been designed with a family-friendly vision in mind.
“We see it becoming a place where young children and teenagers, through to parents and grandparents from across the northern corridor, and the broader Gold Coast region, can come together for a range of activities,” he said.
“The 4.8 hectare recreational park will serve as a multi-purpose area, with a playground, basketball half-court, outdoor table tennis and foosball tables, walk and bikeway paths, barbeques, picnic shelters, a dog park and toilet facilities.
“The two sporting fields will be a welcome addition for sporting enthusiasts and are designed to host a range of activities including Aussies Rules, cricket, soccer and rugby, with over 190 car parks being built and room reserved for a future clubhouse.”
Mr Bible said more than 65 per cent of Gainsborough Greens is dedicated to green open space, including the Gainsborough Greens Golf Course. It is anticipated that, on completion, the community will include more than 2200 homes across a series of residential villages.
