Planning is underway for the grass field #3, which will be converted to artificial turf. The grass soccer field #7 is being converted to artificial turf and construction is underway. A new rubberized walking track is being constructed around soccer fields 5, 6, and 7 and construction is underway.
A new walking track is also being planned. The new rubberized walking track will be built in the south area of the park around the perimeter of the sports fields and will connect with existing paths in the park. The walking track will be 600 metres long and 3.5 metres wide.
The final rubberized top-coat will be completed in spring 2022. The project complements other enhancement work planned for 2021 at the Newton Athletic Park site, including a new artificial turf field, new lighting, and drainage and irrigation improvements. In addition, a new washroom/changeroom building is planned for construction at Newton Athletic Park in 2022.
