Foster Recreation Park

Foster Recreation Park is an example of SMART water use in the Selwyn District


  • Home to 20 new sports fields designed to minimise water use
  • Pop-up sprinkler systems will ensure high uniformity application across the grounds
  • A ‘weeping membrane system’ takes care of the trees’ root zone
  • Mulching of up to around 2 metres around the trees ensures efficient water utilisation
  • Plans have been made to capture water in storage tanks to then be re-used to water the trees
