Surrey Council Approves Contract for Three Artificial Turf Field Replacements

Surrey, BC – Surrey City Council approved a $1.9 million contract to replace artificial turf fields at two of Surrey’s Athletic Parks at a Council Meeting last week.
“Surrey’s numerous turf fields are in constant use by our local sport clubs for practices, games and tournaments,” said Mayor Doug McCallum. “Given the high demand for these playing fields, it makes good sense to keep them in good condition for all to enjoy. We know that active and engaged citizens result in strong and healthy communities.”
The scope of work related to the artificial turf contract awarded to AstroTurf West Distributors Ltd. consists of the removal and disposal of end-of-lifecycle artificial turf, extraction, and collection of existing turf infill for reuse, remedial civil works on subgrade, and the supply and installation of replacement artificial turf surfaces on Field #9 at South Surrey Athletic Park and Field #1 and Field #5 at Newton Athletic Park. The work is expected to start this month and be completed by September 2022.
Twenty-one capital projects have been approved by Council under the $428 million Surrey Invests program, ranging from a new Athletics Centre at Bear Creek Park, the new Newton Community Centre with an Olympic size pool, the Cloverdale Sport and Ice Complex to smaller scope enhancements like new pickleball courts, bike parks, new playing surfaces for soccer and field hockey pitches.
