Recently there have been a number of incidents involving non-members using KCC Park behaving in a threatening manner towards our members. Unfortunately this sort of behaviour appears to be on the increase. Management Committee takes the safety of our staff and members very seriously and will be implementing a number of strategies to address this issue.

Effective immediately, members are requested to carry membership cards for identification at all times when entering KCC Park. Failure to produce your card identifying yourself as a member may result in a request to leave the premises.
