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 and Pearce 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
