Crowd at park opening
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.
