LABOR has promised to spend $1.3 million on works at Sandfield Reserve in Carrum Downs if it wins the federal election.
The funding will be used to upgrade the playground, build a fitness station, expand the skate park, and build seating, paths, shades, lighting, and a multi-purpose court.
Dunkley MP Peta Murphy, who is recontesting the seat for Labor at next month’s election, said “I’m pleased to be able to commit to this project if Labor wins the election this May, which will bring the Carrum Downs and surrounding communities together in such an inclusive space. The new Carrum Downs Regional Park will benefit young families in Carrum Downs, Sandhurst, Skye and from across the Dunkley electorate and cater for future demand.”
Labor Party deputy leader Richard Marles visited the park to make the announcement. He said “Victorians have battled through a lot in the past couple of years, we’re ready to get out and into the community, and Labor wants to invest in places like Sandfield Reserve to make sure they have the best possible facilities- be it paths, shades, lighting and a multiuse court- these are upgrades which make it all the more enjoyable, but also, practical, modern and importantly safe.”
