SPORTSGROUNDS IN AUBURN CITY

Auburn City Council provides, manages and maintains a network of sportsgrounds for the recreational benefit of the local community. The grounds are multipurpose facilities that are used for activities such as soccer, rugby, netball, cricket, AFL and school sports. 

These grounds can be used free of charge for informal activities. However, all organised sporting and recreational activities and events must be approved in advance by Auburn City Council and the appropriate fee paid.
