Sport Otago proposes ‘sports hub’
By Chris Morris
Sport Otago has called for changes to some of Dunedin’s recreational facilities, including turning Logan Park into a fully-fledged sports hub and supporting a “two-pool option” for the city’s aquatic facilities. Speaking at yesterday’s Dunedin City Council annual plan hearing, Sport Otago chief executive John Brimble said Logan Park was now the focal point for sport and recreation in Dunedin.
As we have always suspected, passive recreation at Logan Park for Dunedin residents and visitors will be completely sidelined by organised and professional sports bodies getting the jump on Dunedin City Council for MORE ratepayer funds for their own cause.
