Town hopes heritage designation of sports fields will prevent sale of portion of property

Strategy worked for Glen Abbey Golf Club

July 5, 2022  By Turf & Rec

Ancaster, Ont. councillors have voted overwhelmingly to have 43 acres of green space behind a local high school declared as a cultural heritage landscape. The local school board wishes to sell a portion of the property, but may have run into a roadblock with council’s recent decision. The property includes 10 soccer fields. The town is hoping for a similar outcome as one recently experienced in Oakville where a heritage designation was sought for the Glen Abbey Golf Club property to protect it against development.
