Federal funding to breathe new life into Glenbrook Oval

The Morrison Government is providing $2.5 million to the Blue Mountains City Council to deliver a suite of much needed improvements to Glenbrook Oval.


Multiple local sporting groups use Glenbrook Oval, including Glenbrook-Blaxland Cricket Club, Glenbrook Little Athletics and the Blue Mountains Football Club. The investment will see the carpark, amenities building and lighting upgraded and refurbished at Glenbrook Oval. 

Liberal Senator for Western Sydney, Senator the Hon Marise Payne, praised Liberal for Macquarie Sarah Richards who has been a strong advocate for these upgrades and her community.  

“Sarah has been listening to the local sporting community and passing their feedback directly onto government,” Senator Payne said. 

“In particular, Sarah has consistently raised the need to overhaul the carpark, which after the recent rain has only made parking there more dangerous, due to potholes and damaged sealing.

“Having already secured $1.3 million to revitalise Knapsack Park in 2019, Ms Richards has a strong track record of delivery, and she has again used her strong and positive voice to get things done for the Blue Mountains. 

“Importantly, the Morrison Government’s investment in Glenbrook Oval will create local jobs, securing a strong economy and a stronger future for the Blue Mountains.”

Mr David Smith, President of the Blue Mountains Football Club, welcomed the Morrison Government’s funding.

“This investment is a game-changer for our sporting clubs and will mean local families can enjoy this fantastic open space safely.”

The Glenbrook Oval project was listed as in “Funding Priorities for the City of Blue Mountains” document published by Blue Mountains City Council.

The Morrison Government continues to deliver for the Blue Mountains community, and these upgrades build on our plan to create a strong economy and a stronger future.
