  • Electrical upgrades at Rushforth Park have been successfully completed
  • An upgraded power meter box will provide a more efficient power supply for the park
  • The Australian Government invested $30,000 in the project

The popular Rushforth Park in Clarence Valley, NSW, will now be able to host more sports events following the installation of a more efficient power supply.

Minister for Regional Development, Territories and Local Government John McVeigh said the upgrade of the park's power metre box will increase its capacity to host after-dark games.

“This upgrade provides a more efficient power supply for the park's lighting, allowing for energy to be conserved and reduced power costs,” Dr McVeigh said.

Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan said that the electrical system upgrade provides for an upcoming project to install brighter lights in the future.

“With stronger lighting available on the main pitch and training fields, we can expect Rushforth Park to host more regional games,” Mr Hogan said.

The project was jointly funded with the Australian Government investing $30,000 and the Rushforth Park Towns Club providing $4,280.
