Fen Burdett Artificial Turf Field

The New Look of Fen Burdett Stadium

Mahon Park is one of the City’s largest and oldest parks, and has a well-established history in both sports and its natural setting. The athletics field at Fen Burdett Stadium was opened in 1914, envisioned as a civic space for “athletics and amusements”, and has been a focal point of the City ever since.

The City has completed the renovation of Fen Burdett Stadium field. The key improvements to the park are the installations of an artificial turf sports field and a rubberized community track in place of the existing gravel surfaces. Other exciting additions to the park include a recreational running track, pods of adult fitness equipment, minor renovations to the stadium building, improved off-street parking opportunities, and improved landscaping and seating opportunities throughout the park.

Project History:

As a result of the successes of the joint-use artificial turf fields at Sutherland Secondary School and Carson Graham Secondary School, the City is constructing a third artificial turf field (ATF) in Mahon Park.
  • A preliminary feasibility studies was conducted in early 2015, and two sites were considered for the new field location: Fen Burdett and Kinsmen Grass Field South.
  • An Open House was held in May 2015 to determine the most appropriate location.
  • In July 2015, Council selected Fen Burdett as the field location for the City's third ATF.
  • In August 2015, the project received a funding boost from the Federal government through the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program. You can find out more about this Federal government grant here.
  • In September 2015, another Open House was held to garner initial feedback and gauge interest in elements of the project, such as track surface and amenity designs, from the community and sports user groups.
  • In February 2016, a third and final Open House was held where updated designs were shown and the community were able to provide feedback.
