The Recreation Area is located at 47-131 Braidwood Road, Goulburn, on the corner of Bungonia Road. The complex occupies 45 hectares of land alongside the Mulwaree River. It is a Crown Reserve with Council as Trustee managing the complex. Council is assisted by a "Committee of Management" consisting of representatives from each of the main Recreation users.
The main users of the Recreation Area consists of:
- Greyhound Racing
- Harness Racing and Training
- AP&H Society (Show Society)
- Poultry Fanciers
- Goulburn Dog Training & Kennel Club
The Recreation Area may be booked for use by the community. A list of fees and charges for use of the facilities may be found in Council’s adopted fees and charges schedule that is subject to change each financial year.
Due to a range of animals being permanently on site, and regular major events being held, Council asks that any dogs within the facility are kept on a lead at all times.
