Altona Magic soccer club and Altona East Phoenix soccer club members can now enjoy better access to Paisley Park, following an upgrade to the ground’s car park.

The upgraded car park, including dedicated accessible car spaces, allows members and fans easy access to the ground for training and games. 

Williamstown MP Melissa Horne said the upgrade will provide more space for fans to access the ground.
