Pony wash down goes green
  • Monday 15 September 2014

Mooloolah Pony Club has some of the best facilities in the zone with the installation of a new horse wash down bay thanks to Sunshine Coast Council.

Division 5 Councillor Jenny McKay said the Mooloolah Pony Club was a popular community facility which had a loyal membership base that would benefit from the new horse wash down bay.

“The works included demolishing the existing horse wash down bay, paving, irrigation and landscaping,” Cr McKay said.

“Council is working towards a sustainable environment and the installation of the wash down bay is another step forward to achieving this goal.

“It was important that the wash down bay was environmentally-friendly and included a pump station and a sewerage connection to meet good land management practice.”

Mooloolah Pony Club President Nicolle Jolly said the pony club would like to thank Sunshine Coast Council for continued support and ongoing investment into their facility.

“Thanks to Council, Mooloolah Pony Club now has some of the best facilities in the zone,” Ms Jolly said.

“The wash down bay will complement our existing wonderful facilities including a large grassed area, sand arena, round yard and day yards.

“Importantly, it also provides a safe area for the children to wash down their ponies which is environmentally-friendly for our surrounding water ways."
