$12 million community complex at Golden Grove receives funding boost
A $12 million multi-use community complex could be on the way in Golden Grove at Harpers Field recreation area and adjoining Council-owned land.
The City of Tea Tree Gully received news this week that a $6 million grant had been approved for the project, through the State Government’s Local Government Infrastructure Program.
The proposed building would incorporate a new club room facility for the Golden Grove Football and Cricket Club.
High-level designs show a split-level building, with a community space on the ground floor and sporting club room on the upper level. The community space has multiple zoned areas for community groups to use.
“With the number of requests from active recreation groups, low impact exercise programs and arts and creative groups exceeding the community space currently available, the establishment of a new community complex will help us address this need.”
“The complex, including a ‘Community Shed’, will enhance the wellbeing of our community through providing a contemporary gathering place for community groups, an incubator space for new groups and a dynamic space for community programs and activities.”
“Our sporting facilities are also under increasing pressure, especially with the upsurge in women’s sport.” said Deputy Mayor Lucas Jones.
The Golden Grove Football Club has been located at Harpers Field since 2008. It has 39 junior and senior teams.
“This is an exciting new stage in the young life of the Golden Grove Football Club with the new community building providing increased space for all sporting members to play and socialise” said Golden Grove Football Club President Kate Grandey.
Elected Members will consider the funding offer next month.
