Take a moment to consider the huge task being undertaken by Ku-ring-gai council.
Ku-ring-gai council staff will have begun an intensive changeover program to get local sports fields ready to go for summer sports such as cricket and softball which will begin at the end of this month.
Work underway includes the removal of 80 sets of goal posts and the uncovering of 20 synthetic wickets for cricket.
Other work taking place is the line-marking of 25 baseball diamonds, 12 six-a-side soccer fields and the running tracks at the athletics field at Bannockburn Oval in Pymble.
The Council is encouraging the growth of new grass by fertilizing all 42 fields and aerating 10 of the most highly used fields. Weeds such as bindi will be removed at popular grounds by the end of September.
