Kennard Park

Kennard Park is located in Wellington, off Simpson Street, and is home to the Wellington Cowboys and Wellington Rugby Union Club Inc. The Kennard Park Master Plan has been developed with the key stakeholders of the Complex with the intent of improving the facilities to meet the future needs of the Wellington community. Improvements to the playing surface, replacement of the perimeter fencing, construction of an internal fence around the playing field, new scoreboard and improved car parking and amenities are shown. Already a number of significant improvements have been made since the adoption of the Kennard Park Master Plan that have included a renewal of the irrigation system and the reconstruction of the playing surface. This work was completed through a collaborative effort by the Wellington community, Hogs for the Homeless and Dubbo Regional Council.
