The Hartley Street Sport and Recreation Reserve has been identified as a key project for the Livingstone Shire community and as a result is
included in a number of Council’s strategic planning documents including the Regional Open Space Plan (2010), the Adopted Infrastructure Charges
Resolution No.2 (2015), as well as the Draft Strategic Plan (2016).

Hartley Street Sport and Recreation Reserve will deliver meaningful sport and recreation outcomes for the Emu Park community. Emu Park has
been identified as a ‘high growth area’ within the Livingstone Shire with consistent growth expected to continue for several years. A range of vital community
facilities, including the Hartley Street Sport and Recreation Reserve, have been highlighted as priorities in the provision of essential services to this high growth
area, as well as the wider Capricorn Coast.

Livingstone Shire Council takes its responsibility to deliver key community sport and active recreation infrastructure projects seriously and is enthusiastic to
partner with the State and Federal Government, as well as business sector, in the construction of the Hartley Street Sport and Recreation Reserve. Council has
secured $1.5 Million through the Australian Government's Community Development grant, along with funding of $1.5 Million through the Queensland Government's
Get Playing Plus programme. Furthermore Council has partnered with Emu Park Community Bendigo Bank to fund the balance of stages two, three and four of the
Hartley Street Sport and Recreation Reserve.
