Riverview Park in South Lismore is used by schools and community groups all year round, hosting sporting carnivals and events. It is an important community asset.
Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan secured a $60,000 Federal Government grant to
construct a covered area with concrete flooring.
“This is great news for community groups and residents who use Riverview Park on a regular basis,” Mr Hogan said.
“This upgrade means community and sporting groups, such as Little Athletics, families and children will be sun-safe while enjoying such an important community asset.”
Lismore Deputy Mayor Neil Marks said sporting clubs are the lifeblood of our communities.
“I am thrilled that the Federal Government was able to secure funding to improve the Riverview Park facilities,” Cr Marks said.
“This upgrade is great news for the many clubs and families that use and enjoy Riverview Park.”
“Lismore has built a reputation as a regional sporting hub and every piece of sporting infrastructure we can build or improve helps further cement that position.”
