Maintenance Period

A two week maintenance period program is scheduled at all City reserves in between seasons.

General maintenance period works are scheduled during office hours, which are unlikely to impact training or game days.

Should major renovation works be required for a reserve, that is expected to exceed the general two week maintenance period and impact the club's operation, notification will be provided at the earliest opportunity before the renovations commence.

No chemical additions may be added to the paint as it results in turf death or decline.
