Management of sports fields

Our maintenance schedule is designed make our sports fields available to the widest number of user groups throughout the year. Our team plans turf and irrigation maintenance, and managing the general wear and tear of these sites around game days, practice sessions, finals seasons, transition between winter and summer sports, and casual use of the grounds. Contact us to discuss your site and any sports field management issues via email [email protected]

Turf and irrigation maintenance and water efficiency

To provide great playing surfaces for a range of sporting activities we use a range of technologies, turf maintenance skills and equipment.

To save water and reduce costs we use recycled water, maintain the efficiency of our sprinklers, use a centrally controlled computer system and rain sensors, detect and repair faults as soon as possible and choose warm season grasses.

Swimming pools and splash park

We manage 12 swimming facilities and a splash park as part of our commitment to active and healthy lifestyles and creating recreational opportunities to residents and visitors. Go to swimming pools and splash park.
