The synthetic sportsfields deliver premier all-weather facilities. We officially opened these fields in August 2015.
This first class regional facility caters for most sports including a combination football/Rugby Union field with permanent line marking for both sports, a dedicated football field, a full size AFL field, senior cricket field, Oz-tag, touch football and many other sports. The facility also provides four new cricket nets and a centre cricket wicket that is covered during the winter season.
Besides being all-weather the benefits of the facility include:
- no field deterioration during the season
- up to three times the use of a natural turf field
- a high quality surface that encourages high-skill use
- the elimination of fertilisers, herbicides and pesticides entering Middle Harbour catchment.
While the synthetic sportsfield has a small fence to keep balls in and dogs out, there is no security fencing making the facility very accessible for anyone who wishes to kick the ball, go for a run or undertake other recreational activities.
