News about sportsfields
From our Local Board
From the current renewals and upgrade programme:
- Cricket nets in Wainoni park will be competed in a weeks time
- Wainoni 4 rugby field will be ready for the first game on 12th April - the fields will remain security fenced until they are ready to be opened.
- The lights will be operational in time for the first game as well. These will have an automatic shut off at 9.30pm. They can be manually switched off earlier, but will be auto shut off regardless at 9.30.
- The Collins park skate park will be completed in 2 weeks
Other sports field news :
You might have noticed the activity at North Harbour Stadium - the 2nd artificial turf being created will be open in late July/August, but the FIFA pitch managed by Regional Facilities will be open as soon as their renewal is completed. Having the projects done in tandem has maximised the fields that will become available for community use. We will end up with 2 full sized turfs and a half sized warm-up area.
