These include a BMX Park, spaces for the town's Volleyball club, and other sporting organisations.
Newbridge is in "dire need" of outdoor amenities, and Kildare County Council is being asked to respond with an audit of its lands.
Independent Cllr., Fiona McLoughlin Healy, says that demand extends to the town's hinterland, and is exacerbated by the on-going construction of new homes.
She says there are "known needs" in the town, "including but not limited to known needs like the national competition level BMX park that has been offered free of charge to the MD, an alternative location to the Curragh Plains for scramblers and motocross bikers, a space for Newbridge Volleyball Club, and additional space needed for sports clubs"
The councillor says KCC must now conduct an audit of its landholding in the area, of and of lands zoned amenity, on which the amenities and facilities needed "might optimally be located"
She says the council should also consider "any other method the council believes would best match needs with locations."
The motion will be debated at the September meeting of the Kildare Newbridge Municipal District.
