Expressions of Interest are being called from interested local sporting bodies to be part of a major multi sports complex planned at Toowoombaâ€™s Glenholme Park. Brothers has launched a master planning process to oversee the transformation of the 8-hectare Glenholme Park precinct into a sports and community hub serving Toowoomba.
All interested parties have been invited to an Expressions of Interest night on Thursday, 7 December.
â€œWe see Glenholme Park as potentially becoming a major sporting complex in our city,â€ Brothers Leagues Club Toowoomba Board of Directors Chairman Gary Palmer said. â€œGlenholme Park is the home of the Brothers senior and junior rugby league clubs. Weâ€™ve now put together a board of directors tasked with the strategic direction of the complex as a whole”.
â€œWe believe the facility has enormous potential for so many sporting groups to use. Our region is expanding rapidly and space for large sporting facilities close to the city is extremely scarce. We have a large complex which has the potential to host multiple sports.”
â€œWe have the capacity to cater for indoor and outdoor sporting facilities. Weâ€™ve already had very strong interest from lawn bowls, netball, athletics and soccer. â€œThereâ€™s also potential for sports medical treatment, gyms and hydro-therapy pools – the opportunities are endless.” Mr Palmer said.
â€œWe are now in the consultation phase and are throwing the doors open to anyone through an expression of interest.
The Expressions of Interest night on Thursday, 7 December will enable us to share our vision for the facility with interested participants.
â€œLikewise this night will be an opportunity for interested sports clubs to talk to us about their vision for the future and how they envisage they could be a part of the Glenholme sporting precinct.
â€œWe are urging all sporting groups in the city that are looking at their long term future and are looking for land to base their club or facility to get in touch with us. This is a really exciting journey and we feel Glenholme Park could become a real jewel in the crown when it comes to local sporting facilities.”
â€œThe outline is already there, now with a collaboration of sporting groups we can make this into a reality and the major benefactor will be the communityâ€ he said.
The Expressions of Interest night will be held at the Brothers Senior clubhouse at Glenholme Park on Hursley Road, from 6.30pm on Thursday, 7 December.
