    How will booking for the facility (soccer field, and athletics pitch) be handled once it is open to public groups to book for team sports and leagues? Are there any initiatives in place to ensure field time is distributed equitiably?

    House1954 asked 7 months ago

    Thanks for your question. This is not a City-owned facility; we are only constructing it for the Games. Ownership and facility operations are still being discussed and more information will be provided at a later date.

    Have you given any thought to include goal posts for football? For very little cost you could put in a sleeve to put up or remove posts

    IanE asked 8 months ago

    Thank you for your question. Currently there are no plans to include goal posts for football as they were not part of the scope of work for the new Canada Games facilities.

    I suggest that parking for spectators have a hefty cost higher than a family of 4 taking the bus to the facility. During the games, will Metrobus offer a free or express service for spectators? I'm glad impermeable surfaces were removed for this project. This is an excellent opportunity to allow Metrobus to function for an event, like it does for the Regatta.

    Thank you for your question. Logistics for the games are currently being looked after by the Canada Games Host Society. We cannot provide an update on any planned shuttle services to be included for the Games at this time. However, once the information becomes available, we can provide a link to the transportation plan for the event on this project page.

    Have viewing areas for spectators been taken into account? One of the biggest shortcomings of our current fields and sports facilities is that there's very little space for spectators.

    Timothy asked 9 months ago

    Yes, venue seating has been incorporated into the design. There are currently 1000 permanent covered spectator seats for the new artificial soccer turf, and there are 500 permanent covered spectator seats for the track & field. However, the track and field area is being reviewed for the addition of more permanent seating to reduce future operating costs associated with temporary seating set ups for larger national events.
