Other Info:
The track and pavilion were opened in 1994 with first match being held in October 1994. The original track surface was Spurtan V. The track was resurfaced with Spiketop SW in summer 2002 apart from the Ds which were patched and cleaned. The pavilion balcony (first floor level) is the only viewing area. All throws can be carried inside the track arena as the infield is not used for anything, but there is also a practice throwing cage outside the track. The surrounds are landscaped and there is a 1 km jogging track around the whole area.
