Shouldice artificial turf field bookings open today

The City of Calgary's three new artificial turf fields located in Shouldice Athletic Park are open for business, today.

Beginning at 8:30 a.m. customers will be able to email, phone, or book in person for the 2010 season.

To book a Shouldice Artificial Turf Field:
  • Phone: 403-268-3800 option #2
  • In person at 2808 Spiller Rd., S.E., Calgary
In 2009 more than 24,000 hours of rental time were alloted and Calgary’s athletic parks saw over 3 million participants and spectators from grass roots sport development to competitive league play.

Due to fewer rainouts and a longer playing season, these artificial fields will provide the more than 100 community sports clubs with an additional 1500 hours of field-time annually.

The City of Calgary worked in partnership with The Greater Calgary Amateur Football Association to develop the turf fields.

The fields are designed to draw water to the sidelines quickly, resulting in fewer rainouts and an increased playing season. Football, soccer, ultimate Frisbee, field lacrosse, field hockey and rugby can all utilize the fields, which do not require irrigation, fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides or cutting.
