Lighting Upgrade for Dukes Oval

By The Office of Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith
Posted: 28 Jan 2021
Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith announced that a lighting upgrade will be made at Dukes Oval, Emu Plains thanks to a NSW grant $160,000 to Penrith City Council through the Crown Reserves Improvement Fund.

The NSW Government will provide a record $51.7 million from its Crown Reserves Improvement Fund to maintain and upgrade Crown reserves and community facilities across the State including Penrith.

Stuart Ayres said this record investment would protect and enhance Crown land while stimulating our local economies.

“The floodlighting upgrade for Dukes Oval will enable evening competition to take place and make night time training safer,” said Stuart Ayres.

Mr Paul Jones of Emu Plains JAFLC said we are extremely pleased to hear of this upgrading of lights at Dukes Oval.

This will be of great benefit to the club as it continues to grow over the next few years. Better lighting will allow us more options for matches & wet weather catch-ups. 

As a club we will, for the first time be placing teams into the Sydney Harbour as well as the Western Sydney competition this season which is a big step forward for AFL in the region. The improved facilities will go a long way towards making this a success.

On behalf of the club, I thank everyone for their efforts in making this grant available for the upgrade at Dukes Oval. GO LIONS!!!!!!!.”
