Works be­gin on new oval

Augusta Margaret River Times - - News -

Work will start this week on a new play­ing field at Glouces­ter Park, with a $1.1 mil­lion re­de­vel­op­ment of the lower western oval.

With dog walk­ers wor­ried about where they’ll meet up in fu­ture, the long-awaited trans­for­ma­tion will de­velop a grass pitch suit­able for sports in­clud­ing soc­cer, hockey and rugby.

Shire of Au­gusta-Mar­garet Riv- er re­cre­ation man­ager Dy­lan Brown said the project in­cluded ground­works, fenc­ing, and light­ing for max­i­mum util­ity through the year. “There has been sig­nif­i­cant pres­sure on our sport­ing ovals for some time now so this ad­di­tional play­ing pitch is a huge coup for the com­mu­nity,” he said.

The project is due to fin­ish by the end of Jan­uary.
