Forsyth Barr Stadium Family Fun Day

The Forsyth Barr Stadium at University Plaza construction site will be open for public viewing on Sunday 6 December from 11:00am until 2:00pm.

David Davies, Chief Executive of the Carisbrook Stadium Trust, said the day would be a fantastic opportunity for members of the public to visit the site and see the considerable progress made since construction began in June.

“We invite you to come along, bring your family and your camera, and see how far we have already come in the first few months of construction.” Rotary Club of Dunedin is hosting the family viewing day for a gold coin donation for adults or $5 for a family. The money raised will be used towards the Rotary Club of Dunedin’s community projects such as “Books in Homes” (providing free books to New Zealand children), Shelterboxes (for use in disaster-torn areas such as Samoa) and the eradication of polio.

“Visitors to the family viewing day will be able to see how the Forsyth Barr Stadium at University Plaza is taking shape and at the same time help the community,” said Mr Davies.

Entry to the site is between 11:00am and 2:00pm via the east end of Parry Street, off Ravensbourne Road. The tour route will take visitors through the middle of the Stadium site along the former Awatea Street, exiting via Anzac Avenue.

Limited off-street parking will be available on Parry Street. There will be food and refreshment stalls on site. Link

      David Davies meant what, saying to D Scene that the plan, as he settles in as chief executive of Carisbrook Stadium Trust and Dunedin Venues Management Ltd, is to “say nothing”.
      That’s one rule down and broken – more to follow????

      [or was that a “D Scene exclusive”]
