Mingara Recreation Centre Upgrades Ready for Summer

14 NOVEMBER 2017

The Turnbull Government has delivered another election commitment with upgrades to the Mingara Recreation Centre now complete.


Liberal Senator for New South Wales, Senator Arthur Sinodinos said the project included the construction of a new spectator seating area, designed to seat at least 600 people, and includes a shade and shower proof cover.


Construction also involved upgrades to the amenities block of the Aquatics Centre, including eleven new indoor showers, five external showers, twelve new toilets, one accessible bathroom, and three family change rooms.


“I’m pleased to see the completion of these critical upgrades in time for summer and the Christmas rush. The Coalition promised continued investment in Dobell and the Coalition delivers on its commitments,” Senator Sinodinos said.


The CEO of Mingara Leisure Group, Paul Barnett, said “Mingara’s vision is to make a significant contribution to the quality of community life. Since November 2000, we have hosted hundreds of events, school carnivals, football games, soccer games and Relay for Life each year, which is an impressive feat considering ours is a not-for-profit organisation.


We are proud to support this vital piece of community infrastructure financially, and are grateful for the dollar for dollar commitment from the Federal Government, and the contribution made by the State Government.”


Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and the Hunter, Scot MacDonald said, ‘The NSW Liberal National Government is pleased to contribute to the upgrade of the Mingara Recreation Centre. It is an important community asset serving a wide range of sporting and social activities.


This project was jointly funded by the Federal Coalition Government ($500,000), the Mingara Recreation Centre ($465,554), and the NSW Government ($100,000).
