New pavilion part of Brothers Leagues' $12m upgrade of Stan Williams Park, Manunda.
A STUNNING $12m upgrade is planned for Brothers Leagues Club’s Stan Williams Park in Manunda. Cairns Regional Council had initially agreed on a $4m Brothers planned investment into upgrading pavilion amenities in line with a state league level.
The $12m upgrade will feature an improved grandstand and new storey on the existing pavilion, and will include a public bar, offices and spectator viewing areas, as well as new change rooms, gym and other sporting facilities downstairs, alongside a commercial kitchen and bar area with tables.
The main grandstand will seat 517 spectators and an upstairs undercover area will feature a further 492sqm of seated viewing.
The club has applied for federal government funding which is expected to meet half the cost.
As trustee for the site, Brothers will pay for maintenance and utilities, expected to be about $400,000pa.
Brothers Leagues Club facility on Anderson Rd is also undergoing major upgrades with new cafe and sports bar, plus a refurbished restaurant.
