The Thomson Park upgrade project is officially opening on Wednesday 5th June from 3.15-4.30pm with speeches, freebies and celebrity Basketballers! The revamp includes a full sized basketball court to FIBA standards, additional picnic tables/sitting, a new grassed picnic area and sealed pathways linking the playing fields to the skate bowl and playground and 18 sealed carpark spaces (wet weather postponement is Thursday 6th June – same times).
The Canterbury Rams and Wildcats will be in attendance showing some tips, tricks and skills to the kids, as well as a shooting comp and a friendly game. Come along from 3.15pm for the FREE sausage sizzle, speeches at 3.30pm and plenty of spot prizes and fun through until 4.30pm.
The upgrade has been funded by the Christchurch City Council, with strong support from the Burwood Coastal Community Board and other local groups and users, including Youth Alive Trust, Eastern Community Sport and Recreation Inc and the North Beach Residents Association.
