Official Opening Ceremony Held for New Artificial Turf Athletic Field Fredericton (October 29, 2010)

The official opening of a new, multi-use, artificial turf athletic field on Knowledge Park Drive today heralds a new sports era for Fredericton soccer, football, rugby and ultimate Frisbee players.
Residents of Fredericton can now enjoy a modern turf field that will offer a state-of-the art playing field for sporting enthusiasts. New Brunswick boasts a number of world-class athletes who have excelled on the provincial, national and global stages, and this new artificial turf field will help continue to develop strong, competitive athletes of all ages.
It is a perfect answer to the increasing demands being placed on the City's other athletic fields,. This all-weather field will be used extensively for all kinds of athletic events by all ages, especially by the youth of the greater Fredericton area, and will help attract regional, provincial and national tournaments in the years to come. It’s a great day for the City of Fredericton and for its recreation partners in neighbouring communities.
The field has already been booked for use during the Under 18 National Club Soccer Championships to be held in Fredericton in October 2011.
