Sporting grounds in Blue Gum Park

Blue Gum Park, Kurangga, is probably best known for the amount of sport played and watched right throughout the year.

It hosts a variety of sporting grounds and facilities including publicly accessible netball and basketball courts, an athletics and running track, soccer pitches, cricket and hockey fields, and tennis courts. Many of these grounds are used by Pulteney Grammar School, Adelaide Eagles Little Athletics Club and the Adelaide Harriers Athletics Club, which is the oldest such club in South Australia, dating back over 100 years.

In 2017, the Adelaide City Council renewed the licenses of the sporting ovals to Pulteney Grammar and Adelaide Harriers. The renewed licence conditions are expected to lead to the removal of old and unsightly storage buildings dotted around the northern part of this Park, a consolidation of facilities in a new shared building, and encourage more use by other sporting groups and the general community.
