The quality and availability of our grounds, cycleways and sporting facilities makes us the envy of many regions.
Just recently Central Hawke’s Bay residents got to welcome a new all-weather multi-sport turf and netball courts at Russell Park, Waipukurau.
The flood-lit facility cost $1.8m, most of which was fundraised by the community. It will be a great asset not just for CHB but for the surrounding area.
Along with the new full-sized turf that is marked out for hockey and netball, Russell Park also has an indoor swimming complex, fitness centre, indoor arena, sport fields for rugby and football, tennis courts, an outdoor fitness circuit, cycle track and skatepark.
Located in the heart of Waipukurau and on the main entrance road, it is an eye-catching sporting hub.
