From Hockey WA
Hockey WA as the representative body of the wider hockey community place a heavy emphasis on the condition of facilities and venues in hosting hockey matches around the Perth Metropolitan Area. The expectation of all players is that the playing surface is in a suitable condition to play our sport.
With this in mind, Hockey WA also recognises that Hockey players should be doing their utmost to preserve the condition of all other areas that are a part of larger Reserves.
Hockey WA has received correspondence from two parties in regards to issues raised by parking for Hockey Fixtures.
The Bold Park Botanical Gardens & Parks Authority has contacted us in regards to the parking for matches at Perry Lakes. There are lawn areas adjacent to the driveway to the Western Australian Ecology Centre and Bold Park Administration as demonstrated on the attached map. Parking on these lawn areas is not permitted. Patrons not complying with this will receive an Infringement Notice.
The Arena Joondalup have also contacted us in regards to an issue that arose with an Ambulance not being able to access the designated area due to a patron parking in the wrong area.
Hockey WA would like to request that all members of the Western Australian Hockey Community please continue to respect venues and aid in the care for their facilities. When visiting venues over the course of this weekend, and future fixtures, please ensure that you park in an appropriately designated area, so that all patrons can enjoy the commodities that venue offers.
Good luck to you all,
Coordinator – Competitions
Perth Hockey Stadium, Curtin University, Hayman Road, Bentley, WA 6102 Australia
