World class National Hockey Centre opens in Albany

Guests gathered at the National Hockey Centre in Rosedale, Albany on Friday 13th December for the opening ceremony of this world class facility. The event celebrated the centre's opening, and the collaboration between NZTA (New Zealand Transport Agency), Auckland Council and the North Harbour and national hockey organisations which worked together to complete the project in just 18 months. Mayor Phil Goff and Minister of Sport and Recreation Grant Robertson both reflected on the important community partnerships in working towards improved roading infrastructure in the area, and the relocation and improved sporting facilities that also include the North Harbour BMX track and the equestrian centre.
