Mt Sheridan: Bill Mills Park Popular with Soccer and Volleyball of United Nations!
The park is home to the Hmong soccer team. Formerly based at the Leichhardt Club, the Hmong team have put in goals and marked the field. The Hmong community is significant in South Cairns, having grown in number over recent years.
The other sport that has become popular at the park is, believe it or not “Volleyball”. It is very popular with a group of Pacific Islander residents who often play there. Unfortunately, facilities are in need of renewal, as the below picture shows:
With increased use comes increased demands on Cairns Regional Council and toilet facilities are now needed at the the park and the volleyball court needs some attention.
Demands for a skate park have been made as well, but no funding in that area has yet been identified.
