Jimboomba sporting clubs all get a win
How do you excite Jimboomba’s cricketers, equestrians, athletes, footballers and tennis players all at once?
Build a footpath to better connect their clubs to the local community, that’s how.
A concrete pathway has been constructed along Henderson Rd to improve access between Glenlogan Park, Jimboomba Equine Carriage Club, Jimboomba Tennis Club, and Jimboomba Athletics Centre.
Glenlogan Park is home for the Jimboomba Cricket Club and the Jimboomba Redbacks Australian Football Club.
The path also connects the clubs to the nearby Riverton housing development on Cusack Lane.
Councillor Scott Bannan says the footpath, which extends to the intersection of Victoria Dr and St Jude Cct, is a win for community safety.
‘Our great Henderson Rd sporting clubs have always had fantastic support from the Jimboomba community and we’re expecting that to grow as more people move to the area,’ Cr Bannan says.
‘As the road gets busier, this footpath will let our athletes, families and young kids travel safely from sport to sport.’
The new footpath is 810 metres long and 1.5 metres wide. All up, $130,000 of LIP funding was allocated to the project.
