King George V Precinct shade sail over playground

King George V Oval is getting the royal treatment

Shade sails have just been installed over King George V children’s playground, and you may notice a bit of activity happening at the football pitch alongside Military Road next month, of the non-sporting variety. Wollongong City Council will be drilling holes and putting in concrete supports, then installing six new LED light towers. The new lights will shine a light on the playing surface. Later in the year, the cricket pitch will be returfed and they’ll also put safety netting over the children’s playground, to keep any unruly cricket balls out.
