New Plans For Exhibition Park

With the snow a meter deep throughout the city, the thought of an indoor fieldhouse where kids could play sports year round sounds like a great idea to some people. 

The idea of such a fieldhouse at Exhibition Park has been around for a while but now it's getting new traction, with Frank McCarey of the Exhibition Park Association telling common council the fieldhouse would be great for the local community and also to host regional and even national sports competitions.

Meanwhile, some councillors expressed concern that we already have too many recreational facilities that aren't being kept up as well as they could be.

Council will hear back from a committee on the idea this spring.
