Through redevelopment efforts the Murray Regional Equestrian Centre is becoming a state of the art community facility that will boost Peel’s non-racing equine industry across numerous disciplines.
The project is being rolled out in three stages with stages one and two already complete.
Stage one works included the construction of:
- The access road,
- Stage one parking,
- Effluent pad,
- Waste water treatment plant,
- Male and female toilet blocks,
- Four polocrosse fields, and
- Spectator mounds at the polocrosse fields and cutting arenas.
- Additionally, the single phase power supply was upgraded and a backup 80kVA generator and 100,000 litre water storage installed.
Stage One works were supported by the State Government through Royalties for Regions and the Department of Sport and Recreation.
Stage two works included the establishment of the following amenities at the facility:
- Dressage arena,
- Horse wash down facility,
- Horse stalls,
- Large storage shed,
- Three star equestrian cross country course, and
- Works to the Polocrosse fields.
Funding for Stage Two works was provided by the Shire of Murray ($438,038), Department of Sport and Recreation ($316,233), Peel Development Commission ($257,900) and Alcoa ($125,829).
Stage three works will see to the establishment of a multipurpose undercover arena at the facility. The Shire is seeking funding to progress the final stage of the project.
