Update to start of works

The start of works to upgrade the Bill Jacobs Athletics Centre at Jubilee Park will now take place in first half of 2024 after Wagga Wagga City Council was successful in its bid to host the New South Wales Touch Association’s Junior State Cup Southern Conference carnival for the next three years.

Council has hosted this event at the Jubilee Park precinct for the past five years. The inside grassed area of the athletics track is used for participant tents during the carnival.

The deferment will also allow Wagga Wagga Little Athletics and Kooringal-Wagga Athletics Club to complete their upcoming athletics season at Jubilee Park.

Council is in the process of preparing to put the upgrade out to tender for design and construction of the new Athletics Centre.
