The athletes village is now known as Olympic Village and is home to Heidelberg United in the National Premier Leagues.
The ground has a main grandstand with seating for 1000 as well as undercover standing room. Opposite the main stadium is smaller grandstand with more undercover standing room. Both stands have grass hills on either side but there is no spectator room behind each of the goals. One end contains player facilities while the other has a fence with advertising and the scoreboard. The original athletics track is still intact but is in poor condition. The total capacity of the ground is 10,000.
