The Labor Party will commit $2.5M to upgrade the Kariong Sporting Precinct if it wins government on May 21.

Candidate for Robertson, Dr Gordon Reid, was joined by Member for Gosford, Liesl Tesch, to announce the commitment.

“Across the Robertson electorate, we have growing sporting membership and budding sports stars training and using tired and no longer fit-for-purpose facilities,” Reid said.

“At Kariong, Labor wants to bring the sports facilities up to standard and promote the benefits of sports participation further.

“Sport needs to be more inclusive and accommodate all; there are currently no female changing rooms and this upgrade will bring the facilities up to a standard that reflects the changing needs of the community.”

Kariong United President, Adam Page, said the community had been looking forward to an upgrade of Kariong Sporting Precinct for many years.

“We look forward to seeing this upgrade improve sport participation and accessibility,” Page said.

“These upgrades have been needed for a long time.”

Tesch said it was important to upgrade sporting facilities to help keep residents fit and healthy.
