Historical Football Ground to get facelift

13 March 2015

Queenstown’s famous “gravel” oval is set to get a facelift with works to remove the bike track commencing next week.

The project is supported by funding from Sport and Recreation Tasmania through the Tasmanian Government’s Community Support Levy.  These funds will assist in the cost of removing the bike track which is in poor condition, with sections deteriorating and becoming unstable. 

Whilst the playing surface at the ground is heritage listed, the bike track is exempt from this listing, thus allowing Council to move forward with works to reduce the hazards it currently presents.

The project will also incorporate new seating for spectators which will be installed in coming months and improved drainage off the playing surface.

Council has worked with the Queenstown Crows Football Club to ensure the project will not impact on pre-season training and General Manager Dirk Dowling says a local contractor will remove the bike track which is scheduled to take approximately two weeks. 

“Council is committed to ensuring the integrity of the facility, in particular the playing surface, is maintained.  We believe the project will enhance both the player and spectator experience and the ground will continue to be on the must-see list for visitors to the region” Mayor Phil Vickers said.
