Sports Park Hawke’s Bay – Hastings, New Zealand

HastingsWe have a very nice, all-weather track today, found at Sports Park Hawke’s Bay.  The track is part of a mutli-use sports complex, that is still has some facilities that are being finished up now.  The track however has been completed and has hosted competitions, and is the home of the Hastings Athletics Club.  While the infield could be used for soccer, this clearly was a stadium that was designed with track & field in mind first.  Just look at the positioning of the bleachers.  There are also multiple options for the throwing events on the infield as well.  The tree lines outside the track probably help with the wind, making it nice for the competitors.  It looks like a well thought out design with this facility.  I like it!
