Thomson Park Pavilion Amenities Upgrade
Families and sporting groups in Artarmon are set to benefit from the rebuilding of the sports pavilion amenities block at Thomson Oval with the $955,000 project officially opened today.
Federal Member for North Sydney, Trent Zimmerman MP said the project provided a much-needed upgrade to the highly utilised park for all to enjoy in the community.
“This project has upgraded the current sports pavilion amenities by demolishing the existing outdated toilet block and constructing a new modern amenity block including male and female public amenities rooms, change rooms with showers and toilets, a kiosk and improved accessibility,” he said.
“Thomson Oval is used extensively by community groups. Artarmon Public School use the oval as their part of their playground, local sporting groups extensively utilise the artificial grass playing surface and amenities all year round, and the residents of the adjoining high density housing utilise the facilities as a general green space”.
This project received $515,000 in funding from the Australian Government under the Community Developments Grant Programme and a further $440,000 from Willoughby City Council.
