Learn about the Bear Creek Park Athletics Centre set to replace the existing track. 

The City has plans to build a new destination sports facility at Bear Creek Park. Plans include replacing the existing track while elevating the facility to international standards. A new synthetic turf field in the track infield will also be added.

These improvements will accommodate a full range of track and field sports and include a covered grandstand with permanent seating for 2,200 spectators that is integrated into the existing park. The new grandstand will include team changerooms, officials’ rooms, equipment storage space, ticketing office, public washrooms and concession facilities.
