It was all eyes and ears when works began in August 2017, as locals wondered what was happening to their empty park. Little did they realise this once empty reserve would become a spectacular AFL/CA and FIFA Quality certified field suitable for AFL, Soccer and Cricket playability.
LIGATURF RS + COOLPLUS WORLD CUP EDITION
The City of Stonnington awarded Polytan as the chosen surface provider for the high quality LigaTurf RS + COOLplus World Cup Edition.
This environmentally friendly heavy metal free surface was created in Melbourne, Australia meaning the council could rely on a high quality and durable product that is willing to stand the test of time.
The COOLplus technology in this yarn reduces the surface temperature allowing for a surface that won’t get so hot in those summer months. This yarn is also protected to the highest level from any UV degradation.
The high-tech drainage cell ensures that athletes are able to play and perform well in all conditions. Without this superior drainage cell system, the surface would soak up rain making it sluggish and slow to play on.
The Shockpad Pro Play 23 sits above the drainage cell and below the yarn backing to keep the surface rigid. This added layer of protection allows athletes to play as hard as they like. This enables athletes to purely focus on the game at hand, knowing they will be protected by the durable surface and shock absorbing synthetic grass surface.
DRIVE CAREFULLY ON THE MONASH!
Drivers will have to take extra care and keep their eyes on the road for as long as they can when passing Gardiner Park, Stonnington on the Monash Freeway because this new facility is bound to catch your attention!
