Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council staff have made a host of improvements the grounds and precinct that will enhance the experience for all who use the grounds.
The entrance way has seen new fencing installed, the old and diseased trees removed, and a new avenue of trees planted. The Southside supporters’ amenities block has replaced the porta loo on the southern side of the ground. The new electronic scoreboard has been installed and new concrete retaining walls constructed in the grandstand area, replacing the dilapidated timber sections. Players will be delighted with then refurbishment of the dressing rooms and the installation of gymnasium facilities. The buildings within the precinct have been given a fresh coat of paint and fencing completed around the area.
The improvements at Anzac Park have been made possible with a $175,000 Stronger Country Communities Round Two grant.
“CGRC project managers and staff have made every dollar stretch as far as it can, and the ground is a testament to the passion and commitment from all who have been involved in the work,” mayor Abb McAlister said.
Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke also congratulated those involved on the improvements.
“I know when local sport returns to normal the players, spectators and supporters will be delighted with these upgrades which will improve everyone’s experience at Anzac Park. This work has made the Tiger’s home ground an even better place to play and visit,” Ms Cooke said.
