Saxton Field is a jointly-owned and funded regional sport and recreation facility benefiting the residents of Nelson and Tasman District. You can take part in a broad range of activities at Saxton Field including cricket, athletics, soccer, hockey, softball, archery and netball among others.
You don’t have to be a sports jock to enjoy Saxton Field! This proposal provides for more ‘passive’ or less formal enjoyment, with small playgrounds dotted around the park, as well as a larger playground that is intended to be a regional attraction (like the Lions Playground at Tahunanui).
There will be a pond that could be used by modellers, with a picnic and play area alongside it. Around the whole complex, there will be a layout of walkways, a fitness circuit, and paths for roller-bladers.
