Field House At Exhibition Park Would Let Kids Play Indoor Sports

Kids in East Saint John and beyond could be playing indoor soccer, badminton and other sports at a new field house at Exhibition Park is the Saint John Exhibition Association has its way.

Common Councillor Gerry Lowe tells CHSJ News they've made the project less expensive since they originally pitched it, and now they're looking to see if there's a business case. While at this stage of the game they're not asking for any funds from the city, to actually build the field house would require funding from all three levels of government.

Lowe says the Exhibition Association has always thought it's something the community needs--and it would fit into the current council's priority of recreation.
