Sporting Fields Use and Maintenance Review
Council’s limited sports fields are very highly used by a variety of users. There has been continued increase in demand to the stage that ovals are now booked to near capacity at peak weekday training times and on weekends, particularly during the winter season. The high use also affects maintenance activities and the standard of surfaces at season changeovers.
In recognition of this Council commissioned a consultant to review the levels of use and maintenance practices used to manage Council’s ovals. The consultant’s report was finalised in November and reported to the 4 December 2012 Council meeting. The report is available for review here:
Mosman Council Grounds Annual Grounds Restoration Works
Mosman Council’s sports fields are heavily used year round for both summer and winter sports. At the end of the heavy use of the winter season Council undertakes a program of oval restoration works annually in September. This gets the ovals back into good condition for summer users and also gives the turf the full spring and summer growing seasons to establish and bind the playing surface so it is in the best possible condition to hold up to higher impact winter sports. Below are some examples of works that are done.
Oval Management Hotline
A recorded message provides latest information – phone 9978 4136.
All user groups should phone the Hotline before each training session and game.
This service provides information on whether sporting fields are open or closed for approved bookings for training and games.
The closure of sporting fields provides optimum playing surface conditions for players throughout the season given the different usage patterns and weather experienced.
Sporting fields may also be closed for maintenance purposes; eg. top-dressing, weed spraying, irrigation works; or when the weather is fine but the grounds are considered too wet for use.
