Description

Who would name a public place of gathering after a freakin' coffin? It's like they knew the zombie apocalypse was coming.

History

Coffin Park, despite being part of Crooketon, was the home grounds for the local Grigg Heights football team, the Grigg Piggs. Because Grigg Heights had no parkland in their suburb, the team was forced to locate here around the time of Grigg's massive development wave through the 1970s.

The Piggs, despite being a Grigg Heights institution, did not adapt well to the change and crowd numbers declined as the team showed poor results over the years. Fans of the local Crooketon Cats would often come and donate their own bacon to cook on the grounds' game day BBQ and then throw it on the field before a Piggs match.

The Piggs continued to play right up until the quarantine. In fact, their first finals appearance in 32 years was in the 2005 season, a mammoth achievement for the Piggs and their stand-in coach Larry Ryntol, who came in at short notice after the main coach was injured by a handful of bacon thrown at him by accident. Unfortunately, the outbreak cut that season short and the Piggs have not played since.
