Levelling the field at Alex Moore Park
In January 2014, work started on a new synthetic grass surface on the park – the work will take around four months. It will be the first artificial turf sports ground in the northern suburbs.
The $2.3 million upgrade of the park by the Council includes:
- a car park on Bannister Avenue
- training lights
- new paths and seating.
Contractor Sports Technology International has started work removing the top layer of turf to install drainage and compact the base ready for laying the synthetic grass. The excess soil will be used at Raroa Park to fill in low spots.
The lower field at Alex Moore Park will be out of action during the summer. The upper field and most of the middle field will not be affected initially, but as work progresses on paths and steps, there will be some impact.
The Charles Plimmer bequest has contributed $380,000 towards landscaping.
