In 2019, Strathcona County Council supported the exploration of a fieldhouse development based on emerging community needs, expression of interest from community groups and the priorities indicated in the Recreation and Culture Strategy. The fieldhouse could include a turf field, multipurpose dry land space, multipurpose program areas and a walking/jogging track.
Community group survey
Strathcona County is currently asking for input into the proposed project from community groups. An online survey is open now until July 22. Please coordinate a response with your community group to ensure only one response per group is submitted.
