|The development of a major new PCYC for Hornsby/Ku-ring-gai took a step forward last week.
The first sod was turned last Wednesday to mark the construction of a new, $15 million PCYC Hornsby/Kur-ring-ai at the southern end of Mark Taylor Oval on the corner of Waitara Avenue and Park Lane, Hornsby.
The state-of-the-art sporting and community centre will replace the current George Street club, which is nearly 50 years old.
PCYC activities will continue in the community centre at the northern end of Mark Taylor Oval while the year-long construction project is underway.
The new club will include facilities for parkour, free running, gym and fitness, weights gym, futsal, badminton, basketball, volley ball, table tennis, marital arts (including judo, jishukan ryu and aikido), wrestling, contemporary dance, the safer drivers for learner drivers course, the traffic offender intervention program, meeting rooms, a youth hub/drop-in centre, cafe, two activity floors and underground car parking.
The sod turning was attended by the state members for Hornsby and Kur-ring-gai Matthew Kean and Alister Henskens, the mayor of Hornsby Cr Steve Russell, federal member for Berowra Philip Ruddock and senior council, police and PCYC representatives.
