Morrison Government to support new Mitchell Park Sports & Community Centre

06 May 2019

A re-elected Morrison Government will provide $5 million toward the redevelopment of the Mitchell Park Sports and Community centre.

Nicolle Flint said providing facilities to support local sport and community clubs was a priority for the Liberal and Nationals because of the significant benefits to the broader community.

“Delivering upgraded facilities at Mitchell Park will support the existing users of the facility including the Mitchell Park Football, Cricket and Rugby Clubs as well as attracting new users to the site such as the South Adelaide Basketball Club,” Ms Flint said.

“The new facilities will also support greater use by local residents and the community by providing a range of activities and services for the public.”

“I am so proud to support grassroots sport and community upgrades like this one.”

“I would like to recognise the work of the user groups and the City of Marion for their advocacy of this important local project.”

Federal funding for the Mitchell Park Sports and Community Centre redevelopment is only possible because of the Morrison Government’s plan for a stronger economy.

“Only the Liberals and Nationals have a proven track record when it comes to managing the Budget,” Ms Flint said.

“By paying down debt and growing the economy, we can afford to deliver funding for priorities in local communities such as upgrading the facilities at Mitchell Park.

“This is all at risk under Labor and Bill Shorten who pose the greatest risk to Australia’s economy in a generation with plans for $387 billion in new taxes on small and family businesses, retirees, housing, income, investments, electricity and cars”.
