The upgrade of William Taylor Memorial Sports Field at Thorneside has received strong community backing for the draft plan.
Earlier this year the four tennis courts were reopened after being resurfaced, new lighting, fencing, gates, nets and net posts were also installed.
Two public cricket nets were renewed and relocated.
The next stage of the project proposes improvements to the sporting club facilities, the recreation area and infrastructure such as footpaths and drainage across the site.
A plan was developed by Redland City Council in collaboration with the primary tenant sporting clubs that call the sports field home - Mooroondu Sport and Recreation Club, Mooroondu Football Club, Wellington Point Cricket, Thorneside Community Tennis and Raiders Netball Club.
Mayor Karen Williams said nearly 300 survey responses, including written submissions, were received during the consultation period, and nearly three-quarters of those indicated support for the plan.
"It was reassuring to see club members, park users and locals felt confidence in the benefits the plan would provide.
"Knowing the plan is on the right track, making the most of the space for the clubs and the wider community, is a strong step towards progressing the project," she said.
Council officers will work with clubs, including smaller clubs like the Petanque Club Brisbane Southside, as the planning and design phases progress.
"Consultation outcomes also revealed that Redlands is fairly evenly split between preferring a natural environment or sports theme for the new play space, with the project team appreciating the suggestion from numerous respondents of combining the two to create a natural/sports theme," Cr Williams said.
Skaters and BMX riders are excited about the prospect of better facilities.
Cr Paul Bishop said he appreciated the community's ideas on the upgrade.
"Community feedback and input is invaluable when the aim is to create a space for everyone.
"I have been aware for some time that there has been a desire for changes in the area and am pleased that residents have expressed their views to council officers, so they can design for local needs," he said.
The public's ideas will play a part in designing the new play space, developing the site plan and the targeted consultation on the skate and BMX facilities.
"We know that many people really enjoy the relaxed feeling and natural environment within the area, while others like to exercise formally or informally at different times of the day, week and year," said Cr Bishop.
