Our Facilities & Use of Col Bennett Park
Algester Little Athletics Club leases Col Bennet Park from the Brisbane City Council. We are responsible for paying the rates, lease costs, utilities and all fees associated with the ongoing maintenance and running of the grounds. To assist with the considerable cost of maintaining the facility, we do occasionally take bookings from other sporting, community and social groups for use of the field. Any group / commercial or organised use of the grounds (by personal trainers, soccer teams, or other sporting groups) requires the prior consent of Algester Little Athletics and Council.
We do not charge for individual recreational use. However, anyone using Col Bennett Park does so at their own risk and must make way for club activities and bookings at all times. We ask that people using the grounds (other than for running) please stay off the track area and out of the long jump pits in order to minimise damage. Football / soccer boots are not permitted on the grounds in order to avoid damage to the track.
