Having secured grant funding from the Office of Recreation and Sport late last year and on the back of many fundraising events, the new Community Multi-Function Sporting Complex is well on the way to being delivered.

After a storm in early 2016 damaged the clubrooms extensively, the Cleve sporting bodies have worked around the clock to raise money to build a new facility for the community.

The building is due to be completed by December this year.

Cleve Sporting Bodies president Kelly Richardson said the town and sporting clubs were getting excited about the restored facilties.

"We were very excited to have received the $690,000 grant and we started work in January and hoping it is finished by December,'' she said.

"It will be great to have winter sport played back in the town.''

While the sports clubrooms is the big ticket item in town, there have also been improvements to a number of sporting and recreation areas including construction of a new community gym and establishment of Parkrun in Cleve.

Parkrun is weekly 5km timed runs/walks conducted around the world. They are open to everyone, free, and are safe and easy to take part in.

The Yeldulknie Weir Walking and Cycling Trail, built in 2018 by the Council, is the home of Parkrun which began in March 2019.

Further boosting hopes and enthusiasm across the region is the installation of infrastructure including a jumping pillow, all abilities beach access and shelter at Arno Bay, and WI FI Hotspots in the Cleve Main Street and Turnbull Park, Arno Bay.
