William Griffin turf replacement

We're replacing the turf field at William Griffin

William Griffin is one of the District’s highest-use fields for year-round play and is used for soccer, field hockey, football and other sports.

The existing turf surface has reached its 10-year end-of-life cycle and can no longer be maintained to offer optimal playing conditions.

Repeated and frequent repairs and other signs of the field’s age have started to show, and replacing it now is necessary to avoid the continued worsening of the field condition.

This field is also subject to frequent flooding in the rainy seasons, so the field drainage will be improved as part of this replacement work.

Please note that parking may be impacted during this project.

Find another field

Individuals, sports organizations or teams who want to play on any grass, artificial turf or all-weather field in the District must confirm a booking with North Vancouver Recreation & Culture.
