Kicking goals with park upgrades

Popular Melissa Street Oval, in JJ Smith Park in Marsden, has undergone a $338,000 upgrade.
A new gazebo/undercover multifunction area has been built along with a new toilet block. An existing building has been refurbished into storage space.
A safety camera has also been installed, along with additional parking spaces for people with disability and a new entry pathway.
Melissa Street Oval, off First Ave, is leased by City of Logan’s Matu Community of Queensland for soccer, volleyball and other recreational, fund-raising and community-building activities.
Deputy Mayor and Division 5 Councillor Jon Raven says the Melissa Street Oval upgrade was jointly funded by Division 5 and Division 2 (Cr Teresa Lane) via divisional funding.
Matu Community of Queensland President Lal Ram thanked Councillors Raven and Lane and Logan City Council for the works.
‘This will help our Matu community grow and make it easier for us to get youth and other local community groups involved in our activities there,’ Lal says.
Cr Raven says the upgrade is just one part of an extensive program of works in parks across Division 5 this year.
