Synthetic turf soccer field

Playing field upgrades

Synthetic turf fields can provide more than 5 times the use than a natural turf facility.

Synthetic turf fields are durable and efficient facilities.

When lit, these fields can accommodate 50-80 hours a week of programming, compared to roughly 14 hours a week for natural turf facilities, like grass fields.

The Vancouver Park Board wants to increase the supply of synthetic turf playing fields.

Despite adding seven new synthetic turf fields over the past 10 years, demand continues to exceed supply.

Staff worked collaboratively with representatives of the Vancouver Field Sport Federation and the Vancouver School Board to create a shortlist of candidate sites.

Three sites were approved for further review and public engagement in October 2017 and two existing synthetic turf fields were later included to consider adding lighting.

Our staff is developing recommendations for the Park Board based on public input, technical, and financial information. Check back for updates.
