Manuka Oval’s two million dollar makeover

Share Canberra's trusted news:
Manuka Oval.

MORE than two million dollars will go towards the upgrade of Manuka Oval, according to Chief Minister Andrew Barr. 

By late 2019 the upgrade of $2.7 million will see the oval get a camera deck and new roof canopies, which will provide shade for about 1000 seats.

“The new multi-use Media and Function Centre [which is ready for use] also provides shade for almost 500 seats, and is a great facility for corporate events during AFL and Cricket games as well as community events on non-game days,” Mr Barr says.
