Good Meeting in Clarkville on Kendall Park Astroturf

Kendall Park is the main football ground in Waimakariri and is the headquarters of the Waimak United Football Club.  The Council proposes to install an astroturf surface there to enable practices to be undertaken regardless of the weather. Currently, the demand for practice and match usage of grounds by rugby, football and league could mean the community will have to buy more land. Astroturfs are more cost-effective than buying land.

Residents in the vicinity of Kendall Park at the meeting learned that the astroturf pitch is unlikely to have much impact on them.  There are, however, real traffic safety concerns in Island Road and continuing problems with drainage around the park.  There will be further meeting to talk about these matters, as well as to give an update on the astroturf progress.

The astroturf will be able to be used for football and for training by league and rugby teams – especially if their grounds are “out” because they are too wet.
