Located along Heinemann Rd at Mt Cotton, the precinct would accommodate 14 fields suitable for touch football as well as impressive cycling and BMX tacks.

Mayor Karen Williams said the project, a joint initiative between the Queensland Government and council would be rolled out in stages and would not only provide exciting new sporting facilities, but also unlock existing sporting facilities across the city.

"The master plan provides for 17 playing fields, 2.8km of cycling tracks, new BMX tracks, hundreds of car parking spaces, and new buildings with the spaces that clubs need, such as change rooms, to become the best at their game," Cr Williams said.

"Through a series of connecting, multi-use trails, the site's recreation and conservation spaces will also link to many of the city's most popular reserves and a growing local community.

"For the sports proposed to be accommodated at the Heinemann Road precinct, this is an opportunity to experience new facilities that will allow them to grow and host large carnivals and events.

"While for clubs remaining at their existing homes, it will be a chance to reconfigure and grow, with more space available as other clubs and sports move to the new Heinemann Road fields."
