School board wants to partner with City of Oshawa on new artificial turf sports field

Joint use by school and community proposed

April 19, 2022  By Turf & Rec

With a new Monsignor Paul Dwyer Catholic School slated for construction in Oshawa, Ont., the local school board has asked the city for a partnership arrangement for the inclusion of a new artificial turf sports field that could be jointly used by the school and community.

The proposed field would also include a surrounding track.

No cost estimates have been given for a new field, but it’s expected to be between $750,000 and $1.3 million – about twice the cost of a natural turf field.

The matter is to be discussed next week at the city’s community services committee meeting.
