Facilities at Gordonvale Pony Club and Equestrian Centre have received a much needed upgrade with funding from the Queensland Government’s Get Playing Places and Spaces program.

Treasurer and Mulgrave MP Curtis Pitt said the Palaszczuk Government was pleased to support the project with $93,727 in funding.

“The project involved the construction of four toilets and showers with disabled access to support equestrian at Gordonvale,” he said.

“This is great news for local horse and pony riders and great news for Gordonvale.

“Local sporting clubs like Gordonvale Pony Club and Equestrian Centre are the backbone of our effort to encourage more people to get active and boost inclusivity.

“As a government, we want all Queenslanders to have access to the best possible facilities no matter their age or ability.

“I commend all those involved in pursuing this terrific construction project and thank them for a job well done.”

The $93,727 funding was provided through Round 5 of the Get Playing Places and Spaces program, which forms part of the Get in the Game initiative to support grassroots sport and recreation.

Get in the Game involves four funding programs that provide clubs with better resources, equipment and facilities, as well as giving children who might not otherwise be able to afford it, the opportunity to play sport.
