Sports clubs training at Dudley Park will be able to train for longer this winter, as the park lighting gets an upgrade to better cater for winter training.
The Sports Facility Strategy 2017-2027 identified gaps within the Waimakariri Districts sports field network for night training, and Dudley Park was noted as a park that provides an opportunity to create a bookable, floodlit training ground to support various sporting codes.
Council’s Community Greenspace Manager Grant MacLeod says ‘The lights will be especially useful for our local winter clubs who struggle to train during the shorter daylight hours’.
The new lighting will use energy efficient LED, and will light training areas on the western and southern boundaries of the park.
The lights have been designed so that they meet the lux level requirements to support night training activities on the fields, and careful positioning of the five new 16m lighting poles behind existing trees ensures that the visual impact to neighbouring residents is minimised.
Contractors started the lighting upgrade today and work is expected to be completed by mid-February 2020.
