Randwick City Council has installed a full size synthetic football pitch in Heffron Park.
This is an all weather, elite, synthetic, multi-purpose playing surface that complies with both FIFA 1 Star and FIFA 2 Star standards.
The grass pile is manufactured from recycled plastic bottles, infilled with a granulated recycled rubber, silica sand infill and topped with Field Turf's newest innovation, the ‘CoolPlay’ system.
The CoolPlay system is the last layer of synthetic turf infill which is made of a granulated cork topping. This high performance cooling option has been in some cases shown to reduce the playing surface up to 20oC on the hotter days.
The synthetic surface itself is constructed over a 20mm Schmitz shock pad which is made up of recycled sports shoe soles making this a 100% recycled product.
The surface is 116m long by 83m wide which can accommodate a permanently line-marked FIFA 1 Star Accredited senior soccer pitch, (8) small sided soccer fields, full size IRB 22 World Rugby Union accredited field and rugby league field.
Located opposite Hillsdale Shopping Centre, Bunnerong Rd Maroubra, it has ample parking, toilets, kiosk (seasonal) and flood lights.
