Grass is greener at Lightning’s Beenleigh home
Chris Green Park is set to become another jewel in Beenleigh’s impressive sporting crown thanks to a planned makeover.
The Boundary Street venue is one of 2 home grounds for Logan Lightning Football Club, the other being at Cornubia.
Thanks to joint funding from Logan City Council and the Australian Government, the first steps will be taken in a project to demolish the
decades-old building at Chris Green Park, build a new clubhouse and upgrade existing facilities.
The project envisages new changerooms, players’ amenities, referees’ facilities, spectator amenities, first aid room, kitchen and kiosk, clubroom, external covered viewing area and storage.
Councillor Karen Murphy worked closely with Lightning FC president Fred Waters and local Federal Member for Forde, Bert van Manen, to launch the project.
‘This much-needed upgrade will give Logan Lightning players, members and supporters access to top-class facilities and help them grow participation in community sports in Division 12,’ Cr Murphy says.
A design process will commence this year. Stakeholders and the community engaged to help finalise details involved in new facility.
Once the works are completed, Chris Green Park will join the growing list of top-class sporting facilities and proposed upgrades across Division 12 such as the Doug Larsen Park BMX freestyle ramps and new lighting, and the Dauth Park Masterplan, which includes a proposed new Olympic-sized Beenleigh pool.
