The stadium is not up to date with facilities. It still has a turf track and no seats in all pavilions. However, the place is convenient and it is useful for many including school children, athletes, sports clubs and many more.
It’s near to Bogambara prison.. They got a big ground with running track. The ground is better to play rugby. Big car park is available. You don’t want to pay for parking.. You have to book this place.. In school sports meet days, it’s a very busy & crowded place. They got a modern gymnasium too.. You have to get paid membership for that..
