St Marys Park home of Kenilworth Football Club and Gaelic Football and Hurling Association now boasts new clubrooms and community facilities.
St Marys Park, located at Quinlan Avenue in St Marys, is home to the Kenilworth Football Club and the Gaelic Football and Hurling Association, who together form the ‘St Marys Park Sports Association'.
In April the first stage of redeveloping this key community recreational precinct was completed. New clubrooms including a kitchen, canteen, bar, community meeting rooms, public toilet, male and female toilets and storage was built and work to upgrade the carpark is nearing completion.
In June work will begin on the second stage to upgrade the old clubrooms which will be refurbished into four female friendly changes rooms with amenities, two umpires change rooms and a first aid room.
The City of Mitcham, with funding support from State and Federal Government, AFL and Kenilworth Football Club, is investing $1.8 million into developing St Marys Park into a key community recreational precinct.
A further $173,000 grant from the Federal Government will allow the oval lighting to be upgraded to LEDs.
The new clubrooms and community facilities will provide a modern, functional, and safe facility for the St Marys Park Sports Association and the community.
