A state-of-the-art multi-use sports facility has been proposed for Strathalbyn by a local basketball club as part of a community push to turn land on the outskirts of the town into a recreation district.
Based on the design of the St Francis de Sales College basketball stadium at Mt Barker, the proposed Strathalbyn Community Sports Centre is estimated to cost between $7.8m and $8.5m, with funding being sought from State and Federal Governments.
