Pizzey Park is an open-air sports and recreation precinct in Miami, a suburb in the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. The 60-hectare (150-acre) site is owned and operated by the Gold Coast City Council.
The Pizzey Park sporting complex was established on a 26 hectares (64 acres) site in 1969. It was named after the former Queensland Premier Jack Pizzey. It was previously a garbage dump.
The Australian Institute of Sport established their training facilities for canoe/kayak at Pizzey Park in June 1991 at a cost of $500,000. The park was expanded to accommodate this additional facility, extending westward into the neighbouring suburb of Mermaid Waters.
The site includes the Miami Aquatic Centre featuring two outdoor heated 50-metre (160 ft) swimming pools and one indoor 15-metre (49 ft) teaching pool.
