Carrara Saints is looking forward to hosting Division 1 finals on Saturday & would like to assist with providing the following information to all players, game day officials, support staff & members of the public prior to arriving at our grounds & ensure smooth transitions throughout the day.
Our field is located at Alan Nielsen Park (Boonooroo Oval) Nielsens Road - Carrara
& can be found on google maps by searching for the oval name as listed above or Carrara Saints
IMPORTANT Parking Info: Please see the attached map for more information.
Plenty of parking is available located within our main parking area.
The main entry can be easily found by keeping an eye out for our giant resident koalas
(photo below & attached for those who cannot see in message images).
We have provided an overflow car park that can be accessed by going into the main entry & onto the oval via the ambulance gate.
There will be parking attendants to help guide the way
We do have to leave certain parks in the main parking for the Community Centre as it is a shared car park.
Further angled parking is available in front of the Community Centre directly off Nielsens Road.
Unfortunately, there is no parking available around the oval, so you do have to park & walk in for a closer view
Please DO NOT park on nature strips. Parking restrictions have been enforced by Council previously & parking outside the designated areas will be at your own risk.
Officials Parking will be limited to AFL staff, Umpires & Carrara Volunteers only. We do not have a bag drop as the car park is only a short distance to the clubhouse & changerooms.
We will have a canteen downstairs & also upstairs but please note: our balcony will be closed to the public as AFL officials will be utilising this part of the facility exclusively for game day operations. Cash & eftpos are available for both canteens on the day.
We do not have much seating around the ground, so please feel free to bring chairs & shades for your own comfort.
Please note: our resident videographer will be filming the days games for AFL, the footage will not be available to anyone but AFL at this stage.
Good luck to all the participants, we look forward to watching you all play ... See MoreSee Less
