$1.6 million upgrade to Nicholls Synthetic Sports Field

The Nicholls Synthetic Sports Field is a shared facility of Gold Creek and Holy Spirit schools in Nicholls (Gungahlin). The 300m track features six lanes with 100m straight track for sprinting.

In 2019, the existing 300 metre running track was replaced along with a rubber underlay—or ‘shock pad’—to help lessen impact on joints and provide better support for users. The $1.6 million upgrade included two new synthetic playing surfaces and reconfigured line markings to accommodate for a greater range of sport, including running.
