City of Canada Bay Mayor Angelo Tsirekas today announced the area’s first synthetic football field amongst the huge upgrades to the recreational facilities at Majors Bay Reserve in Concord.

“I am thrilled to announce a plan to upgrade Majors Bay Reserve, ensuring our City’s open spaces will continue to service the growing needs of our active residents and visitors alike,” City of Canada Bay Mayor Angelo Tsirekas said.

“The City of Canada Bay will be transforming Majors Bay Reserve into a world class sporting precinct for the future of our community.”

This project will see the Sid Richards Reserve football field receive a major facelift.

“Located within the Majors Bay Reserve sporting precinct, upgrades to Sid Richards will include a state-of-the-art synthetic football field for use all year round,” said Mayor Tsirekas. “This will be a first for the City of Canada Bay.”

“With our City’s population on the rise, these upgrades will ensure there is capacity to provide active fields for our thriving sporting community.”

Synthetic turf provides a consistent playing surface in every season, safer conditions for participants, and a lower ongoing maintenance cost.

“It is fantastic that over 450 Inter Lions female and male soccer players currently enjoy the use of Sid Richards reserve throughout the football season. This upgrade will see that figure grow, with more clubs and many more players enjoying this field all year round.”

“We are committed to providing quality outdoor spaces for our entire community and have already begun work at Arthur Walker Reserve, a close neighbour of Majors Bay Reserve,” Mayor Tsirekas said. 

The $350,000 project will see Arthur Walker reserve transformed into a multi-use sports field, dramatically improving the playing surface for both sporting groups and recreational users. These works include laser levelling the playing surface, installing a new irrigation system, and re-turfing with advanced Santa Anna couch turf.

“I am sure sporting enthusiasts will be thrilled with the synthetic field project at Sid Richards reserve and eagerly anticipate its completion.”

With construction anticipated to commence in 2019, this field will secure first class sporting facilities within the City of Canada Bay now and into the future.
