Sports Field Upgrades

Martin Luckie Park, Mt Albert Park and Terawhiti Artificial sports fields are being upgraded.

Martin Luckie Park fencing - now complete

From early 2017, two of the three full-sized playing fields will become the training grounds for the Wellington Phoenix. The public will not be able to use the park during the Phoenix training times but there are other areas in the park that the community can use during this time.

A permanent 2.4m wire mesh fence has been installed around part of the fields to manage ball control and to ensure that the investment made in upgrading the fields is protected. The new fence will follow the path of the temporary fencing that was put up in January during earlier field renovations. Gates have been installed around the perimeter for pedestrian access.

When the Phoenix are not training, the fields are available for public use.

Terawhiti artificial sports field

Construction of a junior sized artificial sportsfield started in March 2017.

The field will be sited on the former Terawhiti bowling club lawns next to the Mud Cycles building in Karori.

Work will include an artificial all weather surface, training lights, formed car parking, fencing and footpath.

The work is planned to be completed early July 2017 but is dependent on weather.

For safety reasons access through the area will be restricted while the works are carried out.
