Council to Give Knapsack Oval a Make-Over

Mayor and Ward 4 Councillor, Mark Greenhill is pleased to allocate an extra $100,000 to improve the playing surface at Knapsack Oval, one of the busiest sportsgrounds in the City.
Blue Mountains City Council has allocated an extra $100,000 towards a make-over of the Knapsack Oval to improve the playing surface of the popular sportsground.

The renovation work includes building the soil profile to improve the turf growing conditions and drainage, renewing the irrigation system, and returfing of the oval to provide new grass suitable for sports use.

Mayor, Cr Mark Greenhill said, “Knapsack Oval is one of our busiest sports grounds, so it’s important that we maintain the oval to be suitable for multiple sports across multiple seasons, particularly cricket and soccer.

From a playing perspective, the sports surface is probably the most important item of equipment in any sport facility.”

Those parts of the oval that have shallow soil due to compaction will be top dressed to increase the soil depth and the carrying capacity of the playing surface.

“The extra funding for Knapsack Oval is a result of a budget surplus of $466,000 for 2016-17”, said the Mayor. “It is pleasing that we can allocate the unexpected funding to community priorities such as this, as well as improving footpaths throughout the City.

Council has also sought additional grant funding through the Asian Cup 2015 Legacy Fund to help supplement the Knapsack Oval make-over, in partnership with the Blue Mountains Football Club and Nepean Football Association. Council is awaiting the outcome of the grant application.
