Due to the demands of sporting clubs and growing community, the Lane Cove Council assigned Polytan the project to create a multipurpose synthetic surface at Blackman Park in New South Wales.
Polytan created a multipurpose surface allowing for soccer, rugby, AFL, football and cricket playability. Polytan’s synthetic LigaTurf Hybrid 60 was installed over the Schmitz Proplay shock pad. This surface meets the strict criteria requirements for FIFA Quality, World Rugby Regulation 22, AFL and Cricket Australia.
Since Polytan completed the Blackman Park project, the facility has grown on to include car parking, picnic areas, amenities block, playgrounds, basketball courts, skate park, scout hall, children’s cycle track and tennis courts. This shows that improving one feature of an area in the local community can create so much appeal and attention that further demands are sought after for more surrounding upgrades.
The showcase facility has helped unite the local community and given players a field capable for all kinds of sport playability in the one location.
