Poulton Park, South Hurstville is to get a $3 million upgrade which will include a synthetic playing field.
Works will include an extra netball court, new amenities building and a covered viewing area.
Georges River Council announced the funds have been provided from the NSW Government’s Stronger Communities Fund.
The funding is part of a $9.5 million package awarded to Georges River Council by the NSW Government for major capital works projects throughout the local government area.
The park currently provides grounds for football and netball, plus passive recreation for the community.
Georges River Council Mayor Kevin Greene said the project will include conversion of one of the existing fields into a synthetic playing field.
“The Poulton Park upgrade is great news for the community, particularly footballers who will benefit from being able to train and play on the new synthetic field all year round, whatever the weather,” Councillor Greene said.
“The funding will also cover the cost of construction of new amenities buildings to service both football and netball and the construction of an additional hard court for netball.
“Council has been working to provide accessible and inclusive amenities at sporting grounds throughout the local government area and will continue to improve facilities where needed.
“The new football amenities building at Poulton Park will include a referee room, a unisex bathroom, generous storage space, a canteen, club room, and a covered viewing area.
“The provision of a synthetic playing field in the Georges River area is something people have long been hoping to see, and Council is pleased to have another one on the way.”
