“It will also benefit our popular sports clubs that operate at St Lukes Oval including Briars Cricket, Concord Giants, Canada Bay Cannons and Inner West Little Athletics. This project with provide these clubs and our budding athletes with top quality facilities.”
The $1.9 million project will be completed in two stages:
