On Sunday 8 November 2015 Shane Rattenbury, ACT Minister for Territory Municipal Services Sport and Recreation, opened the new public boulodrome at Canberra’s Weston Park.
Capital Petanque Club received a sport and recreation grant to build the 54 metre by 18 metre gravel area and worked closely with the government and contractors on the project. Minister Rattenbury congratulated the Club on its professionalism and hard work.
With its superb location and great views across the lake to Government House, Weston Park attracts over 1.3 million interstate and international visitors annually. The Club intends to use the venue to host national tournaments and encourage the park’s many visitors to ‘come and try’ petanque.
