Turf improvement works at Citizens Park Oval

1 March 2017

The east section of the Citizens Park Oval in Richmond (near Gleadell Street) will be fenced off from 6 March to 17 April 2017 for turf improvement works.

This section of the oval is prone to becoming soggy in winter, so the works will involve replacing the soil, improving drainage and installing new irrigation lines.

Sport teams who use the oval for training have been temporarily relocated. 

Works will occur from 6 – 17 March 2017, however the area will remain fenced off until 17 April to allow the new grass to grow.

The pedestrian path at that end of the oval will be closed from 14 - 17 March. 

We apologise for the inconvenience. We look forward to reopening this section of the oval in mid-April, which will be able to cope much better in wet weather.
