Construction is underway to replace the existing Ched Towns Reserve amenities building in Glenmore Park with a new facility.

The existing building will be replaced with a modern facility designed for a range of sports groups including four change rooms, a change room for officials, canteen, storage, accessible toilets, first aid and administration areas.
Council will also construct an additional public toilet to service the adjacent playspace, and will undertake landscaping works, including tree planting.
Penrith Mayor Tricia Hitchen said this project was the latest of several amenities building upgrades across the City.
“More than 10,000 members from local clubs including the Glenmore Park Brumbies Junior Rugby League Football Club, Penrith District Junior Rugby League, Glenmore Park Cricket Club, Penrith Junior Cricket Association, and Nepean District Cricket Association will soon be able to enjoy a facility that suits their needs,” Cr Hitchen said.
The upgrade is being funded by Council in partnership with the NSW Government through the Office of Sport’s Greater Cities Sports Facilities Fund. The Glenmore Park Brumbies Junior Rugby League Football Club are also contributing to the works.
Member for Mulgoa Tanya Davies said she is so pleased to see construction is now underway for the Ched Towns Reserve amenities building in Glenmore Park.
“The NSW Government together with Penrith City Council and Glenmore Park Brumbies Junior Rugby League Football Club have committed to create this facility for the community to enjoy a high-quality sports infrastructure,” Mrs Davies said.
“The new amenities block will benefit local sporting groups and the community by providing a modernised and purpose-built facility.”
Council has upgraded nine buildings over the past two years to meet national and state sporting facility guidelines, with a further nine upgrades getting underway this year.
This project was identified through Council’s Sport and Recreation Strategy, which is a 15-year road map for the future provision of sport, play, recreation and open space across the City.
