Landy Field Infrastructure:
Geelong Athletics(GA) and Geelong Little Athletics Centre(GLAC) along with Geelong Masters, are the major tenants and users of Landy Field.
The maintenance of the infrastructure at the venue, namely, buildings, toilets, track and infield, are the responsibility of the City of Greater Geelong. Any issues or faults with these facilities should be referred to the council. The preferred method would be via the City of Greater Geelong “Geelong City” App where you may lodge your concerns about the venue as well as any other infrastructure throughout the City.
