Northern Beaches Council is excited to announce the opening of an additional synthetic football field at Cromer Park.

The conversion of Field 2 to a synthetic field was identified as a key initiative in the Sportsground Strategy – a 15 year strategy focused on priority actions, identified through community engagement, to meet the shortfall of sportgrounds in the area.

Northern Beaches Mayor Michael Regan said last year Council received over 5,000 submissions sending a clear message that there is not only a need, but a demand for more fields.

“The community spoke and we have listened. It was clear we need to act and make the most of our existing land and address the shortfall in supply.

“We have much more work to do, but the success of this field is a step towards bridging the gap to ensure that everyone who wants to play sport is able to.”

“This site provides a consistent, all weather, first class facility which will greatly improve the skill level of all who play and train on it. It also makes Cromer Park one of the best football facilities in Sydney and NSW,” Mayor Regan said.

There are many benefits of the new sportsfield including the ability to carry a greater capacity of players, by providing more opportunity for both women’s and men’s representative teams to play at the same time.

CEO of Manly Warringah Football Association, David Mason, said the development of this site will deliver first class facilities for the entire football community and the Manly United representative teams. 

“The entire football community is so grateful that Northern Beaches Council has continued its commitment to implementing the Sportsground Strategy by providing this tremendous facility.

“The new synthetic pitch, along with Cromer Park No1, will be made available to the 20,000 players in the MWFA football community with players and teams from our 17 local clubs benefiting directly every weekend.

“This will allow an average of 10 extra local competition matches to be played on a quality pitch every weekend, with matches spread out across all clubs, age groups (Under 12s to Over 45s) and genders. The allocation of matches at Cromer Park No 2 will mirror football’s strength of men, women, young and old,” Mr Mason said.

The project took six months to construct, costing $1.45 million and is now fully operational.
