Weston is getting an artificial-turf soccer field in Lions Park. The money is coming from the three levels of government as part of the Recreational Infrastructure stimulus plan.
The project will cost $2 million, split equally between the province, the city, and the feds. It is, by far, the largest stimulus project in Weston. The field is also among the top ten most-expensive recreational projects in the city.
According to Jennifer Cicchelli, executive assistant to Frances Nunziata, “they are converting the soccer field to artificial turf… They will also be improving the lighting on the sports field.”
Cicchelli says that the project will be completed by October.
