Western Sydney locals will benefit from more than 20 new and revitalised parks, 22 upgraded Sportsgrounds and recreational facilities and more than 30 kilometres of new and upgraded walking and cycling paths, funded by the $5 billion WestInvest Fund.
Premier Dominic Perrottet, Treasurer Matt Kean, Minister for Western Sydney David Elliott and Minister for Local Government Wendy Tuckerman today announced more than $69 million in funding for a further 12 projects across five Local Government Areas (LGAs). This takes the total number of projects funded through the $400 million WestInvest Community Project Grants – Local Government Allocation, to 68, worth more than $357 million.
Parramatta Touch Football Association will greatly benefit from this project with a new playing surface in stage 1 and a new facilities amenities block in stage 2 as stated below in the NSW Government press release as follows:
$8.3 million for the Doyle Ground Sports Facility Improvements project to upgrade the existing facility to provide better access to open space for recreation.
Parramatta Touch Football Association is in discussion with Parramatta Junior Eels Rugby League Club and Parramatta Junior Rugby league along with the Parramatta NRL to form a possible partnership which will see the Junior Eels play out of the new facility at Doyle Ground shared with Parramatta Touch Football.
Parramatta Touch football is excited with this new development which will provide a modern base for community sport and a better environment for the local Parramatta community to enjoy with improved lighting around walking track.
We will inform all our members when works will begin but it is well in the planning stage and we look forward to its construction.
