Funding has net effect of improved facilities
LOCAL authorities have called stumps on tired recreation facilities in City of Belmont by injecting funds into upgrading the cricket nets at Middleton Park and playground at Miles Park.
Each project is estimated to cost $80,000, with the City of Belmont contributing $60,000 and a Federal grant providing the remaining $20,000.
Belmont Mayor Phil Marks said community members would benefit from better quality facilities at both Middleton Park and Miles Park.
“It is recognised through the sport and leisure industry that high-quality, well-planned and sustainable facilities encourage participation in physical activity,” he said.
“This in turn will strengthen the provision of sport and recreation services within the City of Belmont and provide increased wellbeing for our community members.”
Applications for round two of the federal government’s Stronger Communities Programme grants of $5000 to $20,000 are open until April 29.
