Herries Park – Te Aroha, New Zealand

Herries ParkI hit the searching jackpot with today’s New Zealand track.  It’s both a grass track and an unusual shape.  This is a great example of working with the space you have.  I’m not sure of the actual size of this track, but judging by the assumed length of the interior straightaway to be 100m, it looks like this track is probably very close to a full 400m.  Two shot put sectors are on the inside, along with the sandpit for the long jumps.  The discus is located outside to the west.  This track is the home of the Te Aroha Athletics Club.
