Replacing ball field cheaper option than renovating existing one, N.S. town learns

Pictou to relocate ball diamond to park neighbouring soccer fields

May 23, 2024  By Turf & Rec

The cost of renovating the Ricky Sutherland Memorial Ball Field in Pictou, N.S. is estimated to cost more or at least the same as building a new replacement field at another location, town council has been told.

The existing baseball field has been the centre of recent copper thefts and has concerns over weed growth.

It’s been proposed a new field be constructed near McCullogh Education Centre where ample parking would be available. The proposed site is also next to soccer fields.

The proposed site is situated in a watershed area, making it unavailable for residential development.
