    What do you think of Brookvale Oval. Does it need upgrading, such as new lights, maybe a new grandstand or even a whole new structure. I think there is only one thing which needs to be upgraded. The lights we have are BAD. Lets gets some new ones and host a few more night games. What do you think???

    I agree. Have said the same thing in another thread.

    Unfortunately there is not the pressure of a marginal seat to get the politicians interested, the local council has other priorities and Manly needs to spend its own money to ensure long term survival.

    It is a pity as in a RLW survey in the 70s Brookie Oval was rated the number ground but it doesn't come a bull's roar of that now, as much as I love the place as it is our home.

    Lights should be a number 1 priority but the local residents don't like it too much and whinge to the council apparently.

    Funny as I grew up in a country town with better lighting than Brookie and the residents there never seemed to mind too much.

    Lights are a must - more advanced grandstands would be nice - but realistically the most you will get it another on the northern side of jane try i think

    i have no problem with the ground itself, its clean, sloid ( as in not falling apart) and the atmosphere when full is awesome! Yeah it could do with some lights if we want night games, but who wants night games ? Footy is sunday arvo!
