Birralee Park Bounds Ahead
NSW State Member for Cessnock Clayton Barr MP and Cessnock City Mayor, Councillor Bob Pynsent officially opened a new amenities building at Birralee Park today.
The new facility represents an investment of approximately $800,000 for community recreation in Kurri Kurri.
NSW State Member for Cessnock Clayton Barr MP said this project is a perfect example of what the Community Building Partnership grants are designed to achieve.
“The grant contributed over $130,000 to the construction of the facility enabling us to deliver a project creating positive opportunities for the community to take part in healthy activities, which will also have social and recreational benefits”, Mr Barr said.
Cessnock City Mayor, Councillor Bob Pynsent said visitors to Birralee Park will now enjoy a purpose built modern and accessible facility.
“The new building includes a canteen, change rooms, administration room for clubs, referee’s room and accessible toilets”.
“The Kurri Kurri Little Athletics, Kurri Kurri Over 35’s, Women’s and Junior Football Clubs who call the ground home will benefit from additional storage for their equipment”.
“It also pleasing that the new facility is already being used to host events, including the Hunter Zone Little Athletics Championships this coming weekend,” Cr Pynsent said.
This project was made possible through a Community Building Partnership Grant, NSW Government Infrastructure funding and Cessnock City Council funding.
