Renovation of ACT Government Sportsground Surfaces

Shutdown Period

Programmed maintenance of all ACT Government natural turf sportsgrounds will occur between 18-31 March and 17-30 September each year.  Any use of the sportsgrounds while these activities are taking place would be unsafe. Note: Synthetic grass sportsgrounds (Nicholls synthetic) will not be affected by the closure but will still be subject to cyclical maintenance activities throughout the year.

Your cooperation in ensuring events/usage, using the sportsgrounds, is not organised during this period is greatly appreciated
