Shared Pathways

We look after more than 42km of shared pathways for cyclists and pedestrians. To find out more, visit our Shared Pathways page.

Skate Parks

Council has five skate parks and we're always on the lookout for locations for new ones. To see the details of our existing parks visit our skate parks page.


We manage more than 40 sportsgrounds across Wollongong. View the sportsground status of each of ground to be kept up to date on which grounds are open or closed for training and competition purposes.

Don't Waste Our Sportsgrounds

Thomas Dalton Park at Fairy Meadow is our most popular sportsground and each year, more than 36,000 people visit the park.

Council has installed recycling facilities at this ground to help reduce the amount of recyclables which end up in the general waste bin. So, if you're at Thomas Dalton Park, please do the right thing with your drink cans and plastic bottles.

Council runs a Sports and Facilities Reference Group. One of this group’s objectives is to help sporting clubs and associations maintain and improve their sports facilities through providing partial funding.
