Almost $45 million has been earmarked for new and upgraded sports facilities in Surrey, B.C. as part of the city’s five-year financial plan/capital program.

This includes more than $16.8 million slated for this year. Projects planned for this year include a third field hockey surface at Tamanawis Park, an artificial turf field at Cloverdale Athletic Park, an artificial turf replacement at Hjorth Road Park, a natural grass cricket field at Sullivan Heights Park, and improvements to Sunnyside Park’s baseball diamond.

The projects are to go through a public consultation and design process before construction gets underway.

The chairman of Surrey’s parks, recreation and sport tourism committee said the projects will improve the health and well being of local residents. Mayor Brenda Locke said the city will benefit from additional visitors to Surrey which is expected to be recognized as a world-class sports hub.
