Hard work paid off: It took Pat Hall, manager of Liverpool Neighbourhood Connections, two years to raise enough money to build the Abel Dunn Court in Hargrave Park. Picture: Chris Lane
Thanks to the hard work of the local community and the Warwick Farm Neighbourhood Centre, a new basketball court has been built at Hargrave Park.
The $150,000 Abel Dunn Court was opened to the public last month and Pat Hall, manager of Liverpool Neighbourhood Connections, was the woman who made the dream a reality.
“We did a youth consultation two years ago and one of the things they asked for was a basketball court… and that is when we decided to go for,” she said.
Game on: The court is now open to the local community to enjoy, with the new exercise being added to the park in the coming months.
Sydney Kings and Charity Bounce will host a coaching clinic in the September school holidays.
The centre and Liverpool Council will also install outdoor exercise equipment at the park in the coming months.
