Upgrades to 16 sporting grounds on the Central Coast will be fully funded by the NSW Government, helping to improve facilities and boost participation.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal, Adam Crouch, said the NSW Government has committed $11M to deliver a range of improvements.
“16 sport ovals and facilities that cater to a range of sporting codes will be enhanced, making participating in and watching sport more enjoyable for a range of levels and ages,” Crouch said.
“Among the local sporting grounds to benefit are Wyoming’s Maidens Brush Oval, Kincumber’s Patrick Croke Oval and Narara’s Pandala Oval.
“These 16 projects are also expected to provide an economic boost for our region, creating work for local tradies and suppliers.”
Crouch said due to Central Coast Council’s financial situation, the $11M announced in 2020 for the second stage of Tuggerah’s Regional Sports and Recreation Complex had to be re-scoped.
“I have secured a commitment from the NSW Government that this funding will still benefit local sporting grounds while also enabling a scaled back upgrade at the Regional Sports and Recreation Complex,” he said.
“The work at each of these 16 sites will be delivered by the NSW Government’s Public Works Advisory, not Central Coast Council.”
The sports grounds to benefit from the latest injection of funds are Blue Haven Oval, Buff Point Oval, Darren Kennedy Oval (Canton Beach), Hylton Moore Oval (East Gosford), Paul Oval (Holgate), Kariong Oval, Patrick Croke Oval (Kincumber), Paddy Clifton Oval (Narara), Pandala Oval (Narara), Sohier Park (Ourimbah), Northlakes Oval (San Remo), Don Small Oval (Tacoma), Terrigal BMX Facility, Central Coast Regional Sports and Recreation Complex (Tuggerah), Alan Davidson Oval (Wyoming) and Maidens Brush Oval (Wyoming).
