A ceremonial ‘sod-turning’ continues major redevelopment at Tanunda Recreation Park as part of The Big Project.
The upgrades are jointly funded with the State Government through the Office for Recreation, Sport and Racing.
The Barossa Council received $580,700 towards a $1.45 million investment in a multi-purpose junior oval, three cricket practice nets, storage shedding for cricket and bowls, and associated civil works.
Mayor Bim Lange said the project is a direct response to clubs that need room to grow, providing facilities that can grow with them.
Member for Schubert Stephan Knoll said the success of The Big Project to attract state government funding continues.
“With the upgrades to the Tanunda Oval almost all of the pieces of the puzzle are in place to provide modern sporting facilities right across our region,” he said.
