Niagara Park Stadium resurfacing

Gosford City Council has recently commissioned major floor resurfacing works at Niagara Park Stadium as the facility gears up to host a number of big events in 2015.

The four basketball courts underwent major resurfacing works in the New Year, for the first time since the venue was opened 13 years ago.

Council invested $65,000 into the project, which is timed so the stadium is ready to host upcoming major events including the Gymnastics NSW Grand Prix and a Central Coast Roller Derby Bout.

The new surface has already been put through its paces following the Hockey NSW Ladies Masters Championship and the Coastal Classic Basketball Tournament in early February.

Gosford City Council’s Manager of Property and Economic Development, Mr Chris Redman said that the works were part of Council’s ongoing efforts to improve cultural and recreational services in Gosford City.

“Niagara Park Stadium is a widely used and recognised facility in our community, playing host to weekly sporting fixtures and major events year-round.

“The project saw us sand back the floor to its original state, resurfacing and laying up to date court markings for Basketball, Futsal, Volleyball, Badminton and Netball.’

“It’s been a busy period at the Stadium to begin 2015 and it’s fantastic to see the courts in such great shape.

“This refurbishment allows us to attract new events and attractions to the area, a really exciting prospect for our residents.”
