Sports precinct ramps up in Georges River

Georges River Council officially opened the Olds Park Recreational and Sporting Hardscape precinct on Saturday.

Jointly funded by the NSW Government in association with Council under the Greater Cities Sport Facility Fund, the project involved the construction of a new active recreation zone.

The new precinct features:

  • Street style skate park
  • Shaded seating areas
  • Three netball courts featuring senior and junior goalposts
  • Two netball/basketball multi courts
  • Bike and skateboard repair stations

Mayor, Sam Elmir said the new recreational precinct was a fantastic addition to the Georges River area.

“It shows Council’s continued dedication to delivering quality recreational and sporting facilities to the local community,” he said.

“I encourage all members of our community to come down and enjoy the new facilities, get active and have some fun.”

The Mayor says the new state-of-the-art precinct brings the 2020 Master Plan for the site to life, which focused on providing sporting facilities suitable for people of all fitness levels including women/girls and people with disabilities. It also meets best practice and ongoing
community demand, he said.
