We have completed an upgrade of the Clarke Stand at Mitchell Park, Merewether featuring a stunning new glass pavilion for spectators.

Mitchell Park is home to Merewether Carlton Rugby Union Club, South Newcastle Rugby League and Merewether District Cricket Club who have worked in partnership with the City of Newcastle on the delivery of this new asset.

Project Overview

Timber, signage and other club memorabilia from the former 'Green Room' have been recycled and repurposed into the grandstand.

Other features of the upgrade include:

  • Removal and replacement of the roof structure and cladding
  • Refurbishment of the ground floor toilets and change room
  • Installation of lift shaft and lift
  • Mezzanine storage area.
The Mitchell Park Clarke Stand Upgrade was officially opened on 15 June 2019.
