When the green reopens, please see the following information regarding access to the club and greens due to the commencement of works. If you’ve had an opportunity to go past the club you’ll see the cricket clubrooms have been removed, new cricketing nets are under construction … exciting times ahead for our new facilities.
ACCESS TO BMS BOWLS GREENS
Restricted access to our bowls greens can only be made through the pathway situated between security fencing between the new cricket nets and the building redevelopment. To enter the pathway go through to the start of the bitumen pathway alongside the parking bay that was immediately north of the old cricket clubrooms and the path to the green is near the electrical switchboard. Take special care as the path is uneven and it is expected Council will shortly put screenings down to help improve this.
On Pennant competition days, Club tournaments & probably practice nights the double gates along the southern boundary fence will be opened up. Parking around the oval on the south side of the ASCC clubrooms will be best on these days.
Parking – as mentioned above parking on Pennant days and probably on team practice days/afternoons would be best around the south side of the oval. If attending the green during the day for individual practice it may be possible to park in the parking zone parallel to the entry/exit road. There is no parking in the old parking area (near the old cricket clubrooms building) with the security fencing closing this area off with the security fencing extending across to the oval fence adjacent.
