Southern Parallel Sports Campus


The proposed Southern Parallel Sports Campus, located on the banks
of Lake Hood in mid-Canterbury is comprised of two key facilities:
Southern Parallel Sports will deliver targeted resilience training,
academic and business education programs, and catering; specifically
to: high performance athletes, disabled athletes, and wounded service
peoples physical, mental, self-esteem, and education needs. Each
participant is offered a more focused and assured path in life. The campus
is comprised of: a series of both indoor and outdoor sports fields, medical
and therapy suites, therapy pools, education spaces, high performance
gym facilities, greenhouses for food production, and town house style
accommodation for participants.
The facility will primarily be ‘private’ with participants staying on-site for
extended periods.
The Southern Parallel Equestrian Sports will offer horse polo, show
jumping, dressage, eventing and cross country facilities of an international
standard. An joint venture agreement has been signed with the nearby
Ashburton Equestrian Club; this ‘joining of forces’ will see significantly
increased growth and development in the sport. A full array of support
services are proposed, including; catering facilities, a restaurant and
bar, cafe, stables, on-site veterinary clinic facilities, lunge rings, and
therapy lane pools. Motel style accommodation and fully serviced horse
float camping sites are provided, along with overflow parking for large
international events.
The Equestrian Centre will support New Zealand’s growing position on
the international equestrian stage, will boost the local economy, and be a
valuable asset for the local community.
