West Park Face-Lift begins in Preparation for Cricket Season and WBBL

Annual ground renovation has begun at West Park Oval this week in preparation for the Cricket Season and the much anticipated Women’s Big Bash Block Busters that are coming to Burnie in December.

Work has already commenced on the centre square and the pitch renovation. Work will begin on the ground surface rehabilitation next week once the Burnie Dockers have finished using the ground for training.

Burnie City Council Mayor Alvwyn Boyd said “Council always does a full ground renovation at the conclusion of each football season in preparation for the domestic cricket season.

“This year will be slightly more intensive due to the drainage works that were completed earlier this year and in order for West Park to meet the high standard that is required for the Women’s Big Bash games.”

“Representatives from Cricket Tasmania will be conducting a preliminary inspection of the ground in coming weeks and Council will work closely with them to ensure quality standards are met”, Mayor Boyd said.
