CAMP­ING FOR THE LIONS

Central Leader - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

An army of camper-vans will hit Auck­land dur­ing the Bri­tish and Lions rugby tests next month. At least 200 new sites are now avail­able at the tem­po­rary camp­ground in Alexan­dra Park and 330 sites have been con­firmed on the in­field at Eller­slie Race­course. Both sites are avail­able for Auck­land’s host­ing of the two tests at Eden Park dur­ing the Lions Series and the Eller­slie pop-up camper­van site will also be open dur­ing the Blues game. Alexan­dra Park will have a capacity of 600 sites on game nights. Alexan­dra Park will have a range of fa­cil­i­ties avail­able to campers at the non-pow­ered sites, in­clud­ing toi­lets and show­ers, and on-site li­censed premises with meals. The parks will help the re­gion cope with an in­flux of vis­it­ing fans who will travel along­side the Lions around the coun­try.
