Jubilee Amenities Block Taking Shape
Wednesday, 10 Mar 2021Part of the $30M plus Griffith Regional Sports Precinct, Jubilee Oval's new amenities block is nearing completion with thanks to a $900K grant under the Stronger Country Communities Fund.
Local sporting teams competing at Jubilee Oval will enjoy new change rooms, toilets, canteen, and cricket pitch while the rugby fields will be reconfigured to allow for additional fields and larger playing spaces.
Additional funding of $300K provided by Griffith City Council will also see new parking installed at the Oval with all works scheduled for completion by June if not before.
Works are nearing the final stages with over 90% of mechanical and electrical services being installed.
The water has been connected to the building and stormwater and sewer works are almost complete.
The rendering of the building has been completed, with the ceilings and access panels undergoing installation.
Tilers are expected to be on site this week to complete the interior tile works, while the external concrete works for the front of the building will start within the next week.
Griffith Mayor, Councillor John Dal Broi said the alterations to Jubilee will assist local sporting groups to make the most of what is already a well-used ground.
“Encouraging an active lifestyle for our community is a priority for Council and with this funding we are pleased to be able to provide world class facilities,” said Councillor Dal Broi.
“With work underway on the Griffith Sporting Precinct linking West End Oval, Griffith Regional Aquatic Leisure Centre and Jubilee Oval, Griffith and surrounds will have access to fantastic facilities, enabling large scale sporting events to be held in Griffith.”
