$105,000 To Help Pakenham Locals Make A Splash

16 October 2018

Even more people in the Pakenham area will be able to enjoy the local pool thanks to $105,000 in funding from the Andrews Labor Government.

Minister for Sport John Eren today announced the pool will receive an accessibility upgrade, including new ramps, thanks to the Labor Government’s Community Support Fund.

The fund is helping local venues like Pakenham Pool inject new life in to their facilities. This includes the installation of accessible sport and active recreation facilities to give locals of all abilities the chance to get more active.

It’s part of our commitment to promoting sports and active recreation and encouraging all Victorians to get involved and enjoy the sports they love.

Across Victoria the Labor Government has invested more than $420 million in community sport and recreation facilities to get more people moving and help bring communities together.

We’ve also invested almost half a billion dollars in the Victorian Budget 2018/19 to ensure sport and active recreation continue to be accessible to everyone regardless of gender or location.

Minister Eren acknowledged Cardinia Shire Council for its commitment to the project.
