Eden Park’s mega future
Auckland Council’s Stadium Strategy could see test cricket moved from Eden Park to Western Springs. Eden Park Trust Board’s vision for how its number two field cricket field could be used includes building a hotel, restaurants, shops and residential dwell
AUCKLAND Cricket has no intention of leaving Eden Park.
‘‘We’ve known about the submission for quite some time and it’s pretty obvious to say that we are opposed to it,’’ chief executive of Auckland Cricket Mark Cameron says.
‘‘Eden Park openly acknowledges that we have the rights to play cricket here and until we let go of those rights it will be a cricket ground.
‘‘We will put in a counter submission, but at the same time we are acutely aware that this is it for us, this is our home, it has been our home for over 100 years and we are not planning on going anywhere.’’
Cameron says its important to protect any green space in Auckland, including the number two field.
Future focus: Eden Park has big plans for the future.
