Thanks to a partnership between the Roger Rasheed Sports Foundation and the City of Playford, residents near Secombe Street Reserve in Elizabeth Grove, South Australia, now have a state of the art multi-use sports and recreation facility. Two multipurpose courts for tennis, basketball and netball, a running track, two hitting walls, an oval, playground equipment and picnic and barbecue areas were installed to create an area that can be enjoyed by children and their families.
The Secombe Street reserve had been vacant for 40 years.
Guest speakers at the opening of the reserve on 15 June included Roger Rasheed, City of Playford Mayor Glenn Docherty and Adelaide United player Bruce Djite.
Toro Australia donated the irrigation, including Sentinel Central Control hardware, valves and and Toro 640 Series Sprinklers for this community project , with the support of irrigation dealer, Newtons Building & Landscape Supplies (Irrigear member). LCS Landscapes installed the irrigation and completed landscape works.
The Roger Rasheed Sports Foundation's aim is to enrich the lives of underprivileged children through sport.
