The track at Lloyd Elsmore Park is the second cinder track that I have come across in New Zealand. At least I think it’s a cinder track. In the Google photo, it looks like there is work being done here. I haven’t been able to find any information of this track, so I’m guessing it might be just general maintenance, or spreading new cinders. If this was prep for the installation of a new surface, I would have been able to find details on the upgrade. However, on the Google map, this field is labeled “Sports Technology Rekortan M99” which is a synthetic track surface, so maybe it is getting a new surface after all. The Pakuranga Athletics Club calls this track home, but no info on their website about the track either. I guess we’ll have to wait for Google to update their satellite images.
