City of Canada Bay Mayor Helen McCaffrey was today joined by the Federal Member for Reid, Craig Laundy to officially open a new home for local sports groups in Rothwell Park, Concord.

City of Canada Bay Mayor Helen McCaffrey said the $1.78 million Ted Stockdale Pavilion had been delivered thanks to a funding partnership between the City of Canada Bay, the Federal Government, the NSW State Government and Briars at Greenlees Sporting Club.

“The new facility at Rothwell Park will provide our community and local sporting clubs with a venue that meets the needs of a growing, active population,” Mayor McCaffrey said. “It is the result of shared goals and funding.”

“The facility is another example of the City of Canada Bay delivering for the future of our community through collaboration with Government and local organisations.”

The Rothwell Park Community & Amenities Building was named the Ted Stockdale Pavilion in honour of Briars Club stalwart Ted Stockdale – a local rugby and cricket player who graced the field for the Briars between 1945 and 1979. The Pavilion was named after Ted Stockdale not only for his exploits on the field, but for his leadership and tireless administrative work for the club from 1953 to 1980.

The Pavilion replaces the old Rothwell Park amenities block which will be repurposed as public toilets and storage.
