Completed projects give sporting facilities a facelift

Council’s Manager of Recreation and Open Space Ian McAlister said that he is pleased to report that a number of projects that have recently been completed will bring positive outcomes to the sporting community of Dubbo.

“As part of the 2017/2018 Community and Open Space Budget, $140,000 was allocated to
Installing lighting at Apex Field number two,”

“The lighting system installed is a 100LUX to 200LUX lighting level which is the standard required for training and low level competition games,”

“This new lighting will take pressure of the other two fields, with all fields now having lights,” Mr McAlister said.

“Lady Cutler East has also had lighting installed as part of the capital works program for the 2017/2018 Community and Open Space budget,”

“This new lighting will assist the Dubbo District Football Association with night time training fields as currently up to four teams train on one field,” Mr McAlister said.

“Nearing completion it the renewal of the synthetic hockey field at Pioneer Park Hockey Complex which was also part of the 2017/2018 capital works program,”

“Due to be completed before Christmas, this playing surface will be to international standard,” he said.

Mr McAlister said that Council is also providing defibrillators at all sporting amenities in Dubbo and Wellington.

“Council decided to purchase defibrillators for sporting facilities after Orange had an incident at a sporting ground where a man’s life was saved thanks to easy access to a defibrillator at the event,” he said.
