The track and field season starts in one month!
This summer, the Newtown Park track is being replaced. The track will be out of action from Monday 4
December through till the Capital Classic on the 19th of January. (If it is ready prior to that date we
will advise.) Alternative venues will be used, including the Basin Reserve for the Scottish Night of Miles.
Also, the grass area is also being stripped back this year which is long overdue. Wellington City Council
started this work in August. There will be no parking outside the Newtown Park grandstand until 15
September. While the grass is growing the inner field will be closed for throws or to walk or train on
until mid-November. Shot Put can be used for training and competitions in the shot put areas, but
definitely no throwing at all onto the grass. Sinclair Park is available for throws. Athletics Wellington will advise
us immediately via Facebook, clubs and coaches when all throws practices and competitions can
resume as normal at Newtown Park.
