Cherry Gardens Ironbank Recreation Ground


The Cherry Gardens Ironbank Recreation Ground would like to thank everyone who voted for our playground and fitness equipment project in the recent Fund My Neighborhood grant program.

The program offered funding for projects around the State, based on the level of support shown by the local community for each project by those who voted online.

With plenty of promotion through Facebook we managed to poll enough votes to attract $92,000 towards new playground and fitness equipment. Without grant funding, projects like these are not possible at the Rec Ground as we are community owned, with no direct local government funding.

Over the next couple of months we will determine the best use of these funds to provide a secure play area for children, and fitness equipment that will be available for everyone to use at any time. We will engage playground construction businesses, but it would also be an ideal time to contact to us with ideas or assistance to get the best value from the funding. I can be contacted on 0414 694 324, or by email via Club Secretary, Chris McGowan, at

We look forward to showing you the final project plans in the new year.
Thanks again!
Matt Smith
