An artificial turf field and track facility that has been four years in the making is counting the days down for its official opening in Gander, NL.

The $6.7-million facility is to open in a few weeks. The project features an eight-lane, 400-metre track that surrounds a regulation-size soccer field.

Snags were experienced shortly after construction begun, including drainage and ground preparation issues, which delayed the facility’s opening by a full season.

The facility allows for sports seasons to be prolonged.
