Hi Anthony - It's one multi-use field, equivalent to two full-size football fields. Does that help?

That was what i was hoping- once the decision was made to spend the money.

What about the football field, will it be turfed?
Andrea Bosco (Editor) April 13, 2012 at 06:28 PM
Hi Dan - Township staff said there aren't any current plans to do any more turfing in the park, however this field is multi-use so it can be used for football. Does that help?
