The $16.5 million redevelopment of the Gold Coast Hockey Centre was completed in June 2017 and now provides the Gold Coast with contemporary hockey facilities designed to cater for elite training and competitions as well as community use.
Located at Keith Hunt Park in Labrador, the Gold Coast Hockey Centre is home to the Gold Coast Hockey Association and the Labrador Hockey Club, and is now ready for Commonwealth Games action in 2018.
The redevelopment included two newly developed, internationally certified, all-weather synthetic hockey pitches with north-south orientation, in addition to an expansion of the clubhouse amenities, an upgraded car park and surrounding parklands.
Kathleen McCaskie, the GC2018 Hockey Manager said the new facility “provides an incredible legacy for the Gold Coast community. The upgraded clubhouse will become the meeting place for social gathers among the hockey community, while the new pitches provide athletes of all skills and levels the rare opportunity to train and compete on an international facility. We’ve already received significant positive feedback from local and international super stars, putting us in good stead ahead of the April 2018 Commonwealth Games.”
