Lamport Stadium has a long standing history in Parkdale. Among many other events, Lamport Stadium has been host to the Caribana King and Queen Festival and local community sports clubs, such as field hockey and football. However, as many community members know, the stadium has been under utilized over the last several years, as a result of the turf’s poor condition. I am happy to report that a Request for Proposal is being issued and once it is complete new turf will be installed in Fall of 2007. The new turf will accommodate a number of users and bring life back to this historic community facility. Once the turf has been installed I will post an invite on the blog for the grand re-opening. I look forward to celebrating Lamport’s rejuvenation with you in the fall.
