Council staff and contractors have been working to maintain existing sporting fields and are planning improvements to maximise future usage after heavy rains saw Mosman receive its annual average rainfall in just four months.
Recent drainage upgrades and the installation of more durable Santa Ana Couch have minimised disruption at Allan Border, Rawson and Middle Head Ovals while upgrade works to Balmoral Oval are planned for late 2023.
Ground closures are impacted by preceding weather conditions, drainage capacity and field preparation rather than weather conditions on the day and further rain over winter may cause additional issues.
Club presidents and associations will continue to be regularly updated about any oval closure decisions. Contact the oval management hotline on 9978 4136 or visit works.mosman.nsw.gov.au to view any oval closures.
