Message received from Blacktown Council Today.
This is to advise that ALL COUNCIL PARKS where sporting activities are conducted within the City of Blacktown WILL BE OPEN for all sports from 4.00 PM, Friday 26 August 2016. Please note: Even if Councils sports fields are described as "OPEN', in the event of wet weather it is up to the individual club or association to make a decision on use, taking into consideration the condition of the field, any damage that may be caused and duty of care to the participants. In such circumstances, individuals should contact their club or association to confirm whether the club or association has made a decision to use the sports field. Further for your information, Council has setup park closure information on its web site at http://services.blacktown.nsw.gov.au/wetweather/. You may wish to pass this information onto your players, coaches, parents, etc.
Current information on the status of parks is also available on Council's Wet Weather information line 9839 6575. Please be advised that this notice DOES NOT include the facilities at Blacktown Sportspark.
