We installed 4 solar lights along the car park entry and northern car park at Burwood Reserve. We did this to:

  • provide safer access to and from the sports facilities in the evening and after dark
  • give people more opportunities to use the oval for sport and recreation activities
  • encourage people of all genders to participate in sport (this forms part of our Diversity, Inclusion and Participation Program).

About the project

Our final design included 4 light solar lights instead of 6. We found that this:

  • is more efficient
  • can achieve the same lighting levels needed along the car park to meet Australian Standards.

Key features of the lighting include:

  • targeted light to minimise impact on wildlife and surrounding neighbourhood
  • energy-efficient LED lighting generated by solar power
  • controlled timing from dusk, with the lights switched off by 11:45 pm Monday to Saturday and 9 pm Sunday and public holidays. This may change slightly in accordance with the sporting clubs allocated times at Burwood Reserve.


Works were finalised in mid-May and took 4 weeks to complete.
