Facilities at the Gloucester Recreation Park will soon be upgraded after Member for Upper Hunter Michael Johnsen announced $110,000 will be allocated to the site.
The grant is derived from the Stronger Country Communities fund.
Mr Johnsen said the upgrades will be enjoyed by residents and the region.
“This is fantastic news for Gloucester.
“Our community has been calling out for upgrades to local facilities and I’m thrilled these can now be carried out.
“Stronger Country Communities funding is an investment in local infrastructure to improve the lives of residents and enhance the attractiveness of our region – this funding will help us do exactly that,” Mr Johnsen said.
The Stronger Country Communities fund is one of the six funds that make up the NSW Government’s $1.3 billion Regional Growth Fund, which is designed to improve economic growth and productivity through investment in regional communities.
“Applications for round two of funding are currently and further details can be found at www.nsw.gov.au/strongercountrycommunities,” Mr Johnsen said.
