Home to the Harrow Balmoral Football Netball Club, the new Balmoral Community Complex at Balmoral Recreation Reserve replaces ageing facilities that were struggling to meet the needs of clubs and wider Balmoral community.
The Victorian Government funding kicked in for new floor coverings, kitchen fit-out and appliances, cool room, audio system, benches and landscaping.
The new complex is also a boon for the local community including the Balmoral Rodeo Committee and Balmoral Pastural and Agricultural Show Committee who now also have access to the new facility to stage meetings, events and celebrations.
President of Balmoral Community Complex Committee of Management Mick Leeming said the new facilities are fantastic for the Balmoral community.
“They will make a huge difference to our sports club and other activities, what better way to bring the whole community together,” he said.
The Balmoral Complex opening comes a mere 13 months since the launch of female friendly facilities at neighbouring Harrow, in the West Wimmera Shire courtesy of a $1 million investment from the Victorian Government.
From new sports pavilions to playspace upgrades, projects like these provide high-quality and accessible places for Victorians to reap the benefits of sport and active recreation participation.
This initiative is part of the Government’s investment of more than $1.1 billion in community sport and active recreation infrastructure since 2014.
