Field Development Projects

Field Development
Parks, Recreation & Culture strives to provide residents with parks, trails and other recreation facilities that are:
  • thoughtfully designed
  • well maintained
  • meet the needs of our community
We do this by building new parks and improving our existing parks.

June 2017 - Concept

Planning for a new synthetic turf field complex is in the early stages. This phased project will include conversions of two existing softball diamonds to a synthetic surface with practice areas and field lines to support fall and winter sports. The project will also include a fieldhouse event space and lighting for diamonds #3 and #4.

This project will form part of a sports hub with the proposed Arthur Peake Centre / Golden Ears Elementary field across the street. See the concept plan (PDF) for more information.
