June 5, 2023 By Turf & Rec
A three-year-long renovation project at Montreal’s Gary Carter Stadium has concluded, opening the door for baseball games to begin.
The ball park, located in the city’s Ahuntsic-Cartierville borough at Park Ahuntsic, has a new synthetic playing surface which is said to generated less heat and will keep maintenance costs down. The $10-million project began in 2021 – a full decade after the park originally opened.
Additional upgrades include LED lighting and peripheral safety netting.
The stadium will be used by about 300 young boys and girls aged seven to 18 as well as by the Montreal Orioles who play in the Quebec Junior Elite Baseball League.
The stadium is named for the late Gary Carter who was a standout catcher for the Montreal Expos and a Hall of Fame inductee.
