Fixing the ground damage at Manawaroa Park
We're continuing a programme of work to repair the boggy playing fields at Manawaroa Park. The entire park has been spiked to promote rapid drying, however there are still some problem areas where old tree stumps have rotted and collapsed in the wet, causing the ground around them to slump. These areas are isolated. Though they cannot be used, they are well marked and will not affect play. We'll pull a mole plough through them when we're able to get enough traction, and their repair will take place progressively as the soil dries out. Please be aware that because we're continuing to get regular rain and poor drying conditions, we cannot give a specific timeframe for full reparation.
