New Sporting Facilities Boost Play at Mulgoa Rise
“Local teams and spectators alike will benefit from this massive $200,000 NSW Government investment to build a store room facility as part of a range of new upgrades to fields, lighting and the amenity block at Mulgoa Rise,” Mr Ayres said.
"With the population of Penrith forecast to grow to more than 256,000 people by 2036, improving facilities at a local level will help to increase participation across a range of sports including football, rugby and cricket.
“The booming popularity of the Glenmore Park Football Club, now with over 1,200 members, has brought the community together for decades in Penrith, and now players of all ages will see the difference a boost in key infrastructure can make to play,” said Mr Ayres.
“Importantly these new facilities highlight to the community the level of commitment and investment the NSW Government and Penrith City Council have in delivering for our city,” added Stuart Ayres.
Member for Mulgoa Tanya Davies said the decision to upgrade fields, lighting, amenities and storage facilities would improve the experience for both spectators and players.
“This grant has had a positive impact at a local level and these new facilities are state-of-the-art,” Ms Davies said.
“The new facilities will be ready in time for the football season’s kick-off and players, referees, coaches and administrators of all ages and abilities are set to benefit from the upgrade.
“With so many sporting clubs across Mulgoa run largely by volunteers, local sports grants help boost infrastructure, programs and services to increase on-going participation.
Mulgoa Rise – “The Nest” is the new home ground for Glenmore Park Football Club (replacing Ched Towns Reserve) and can be found at Cnr of Bradley Street & Parkway Ave, Glenmore Park.
