State Government grant funding announced this week will pave the way for a new junior oval and cricket nets at Tanunda Recreation Park, and a new home for Barossa Rams Rugby Club, as part of The Big Project.
The Barossa Council received $580,700 towards a $1.45 million investment in a multi-purpose junior oval, three cricket practice nets, storage shedding and civil works at Tanunda Recreation Park.
Council also received $995,000 to develop new $2.7 million rugby and multi-use facilities at a purpose-built venue adjacent the Rex, Barossa Aquatic Fitness Centre. Facilities include a rugby pitch and three touch football pitches, LED lighting, all use changerooms, clubrooms with function space and storage.
The funding windfall was made available through the latest round of the State Government’s Office of Recreation, Sports and Racing Grassroots Facilities Program.
