Artificial Sportsfield Surfaces
We're working to improve sporting facilities. We've created some artificial sportsfields and more are planned.
Artificial sportsfield at Wellington College
The 2012-22 Long-Term Plan proposes the construction of three artificial sportsfield surfaces in the next five years:
Alex Moore Park Redevelopment

Partnership sportsfield project
St Patrick's College sportsfield
In February 2012 the Council agreed to pay half the cost of a new turf at St Patrick's College in Kilbirnie.
The proposed new all-weather sportsfield is a partnership project between the Council and St Patrick's, with the Council paying 50 percent of the total cost up to a maximum of $800,000.
Construction of the sportsfield started in early January 2013, and is expected to be completed in April 2013.
