Otaraua drainage aims to improve surface for 2018 season

Summer in KAPITI Chocolate Brown

Work kicked off on Monday to carry out essential drainage work at Otaraua Park, to help sports teams make the most of the fields going forward. Parks and Recreation manager Alison Law says this work will benefit a range of sports clubs, supporters and community groups. “Last year we had limited fields available due to significant flooding and a lot of wet weather. “This work on the main field will improve the surface, increase the number

of hours that the fields are available, and hopefully relieve some of the pressure on field availability in Kapiti,” Alison says. “It’s a start and won’t fix the problem entirely, so we need people to keep in mind that there will be days where there’s just too much water for play to go ahead, on this field and others around the district.” The work will take approximately three weeks and coincide with work at Jim Cooke Park in Waikanae to get those fields ready for the season.
