Lyndoch Oval to boast new sports facilities

Lyndoch Oval is set to become a premier Barossa sporting venue with a $660,000 investment in LED lighting, oval upgrade and four new cricket nets.

The Barossa Council project will support Barossa District Football and Netball Club to relocate from Williamstown to Lyndoch to access contemporary playing, training and clubroom facilities in an inclusive sporting environment.

Local rugby, cricket and athletics will also benefit from oval upgrades that accommodate a turf wicket and 400 metre running track.

The Big Project initiative is co-funded by the Marshall Government as part of its commitment to grassroots sports development.

New look for Tanunda Show Hall

A site tour is the perfect opportunity to inspect the $1.7 million re-development of Tanunda Show Hall as part of The Big Project.

It’s now the Barossa’s largest undercover events venue featuring a commercial grade kitchen, green room, expanded stage, new roof and insulation.

The Barossa Council is offering site tours on Thursday, October 15 and Friday, October 16 – choose from 9a.m. – 10 a.m. or 4p.m. – 5p.m. (bookings are essential to zirwin@barossa.sa.gov.au).

It’s a great chance to see the contemporary new facility first hand – it might just be the perfect location for your next event!

>> At Old Talunga Park are Wendy Harvey (Mount Pleasant Inc), Michael Noack (tennis), Member for Schubert Stephan Knoll, Tam Crossman (netball) and Mayor Bim Lange.

Investment in Mount Pleasant sports hub

Mount Pleasant tennis and netball clubs will benefit from a $525,000 investment in sports flood lighting and upgrade to six full size courts at Old Talunga Park as part of The Big Project.

High quality courts and lighting will not only create a safer playing environment but also expand opportunities for people to participate in competitive and
social sport.

There are flow-on benefits for the wider community who access Old Talunga Park for recreation, social activities and leisure.

The Barossa Council project is co-funded by the Marshall Government through its grassroots funding programme.

More walks for dog lovers

Dog lovers and their four-legged friends can now enjoy the Southern Dog Park, which has opened in Williamstown.

The fully-fenced park is located at Queen Victoria Jubilee Park and features pedestrian gates, dog bag dispenser, bin and water fountain situated in a beautiful natural setting.

It complements the existing Northern Dog Park in Nuriootpa.

Both parks deliver on the features that were prioritised by the community during consultation by The Barossa Council.

They give people more opportunities to be actively engaged in recreation and socialisation with fellow dog lovers.

The southern and northern dog parks have been made possible through Council’s partnership with the State Government, which contributed $100,000 through the office of Member for Schubert, Mr Stephan Knoll.
