Barrie, Ont. to consider proposal for $4.6-million, multi-use artificial turf sports field

Project to take minimum 16 months to complete

City council in Barrie, Ont. will be considering the construction of a new multi-use sports field this week.

The proposed facility is a combined sports field and parade ground that would measure 100 metres by 154 metres, and would be used for soccer, football, rugby and lacrosse.

Estimated to cost $4.6 million, the field would include an artificial turf surface. The project would take a minimum of 16 months to complete.

Not everyone in the community is on board with the project, however. A longtime member of the Allandale Neighbourhood Association says he wishes there was more advanced notice about the proposed project, adding he can’t understand why the field is necessary when the city already has a large sports complex.
