Crowd at park open­ing

CHB Mail - - Farm Focus -

CHB’s new­est and most modern sports venue is now open.

In a cer­e­mony on Satur­day morn­ing, guests, dig­ni­taries and a large con­tin­gent of res­i­dents heard the new Cen­tra­lines Sports Park de­clared open for busi­ness.

The park — ad­ja­cent to Rus­sell Park on Mitchell St Waipuku­rau — is the cul­mi­na­tion of two years of fundrais­ing and is a multi use fa­cil­ity, for hockey, net­ball, foot­ball and fut­sal.

CHB Mayor Alex Walker said it was a huge and im­pres­sive ef­fort from the Cen­tral Hawke’s Bay Com­mu­nity Trust for their lead­er­ship and vi­sion to cre­ate such an sig­nif­i­cant as­set for the Cen­tral Hawke’s Bay Com­mu­nity and the turnout to the open­ing re­flected the pride the com­mu­nity had for this new fa­cil­ity.

The sports park is owned by the CHB and District Com­mu­nity Trust, which also built Waipuku­rau’s in­door heated pool and sta­dium.
