The Fields of Uxbridge could soon be getting some upgrades, if local town council gets grant approval on a couple proposed projects. The first being a restructuring of the current snack bar and washroom facilities at Veteran’s Park, and the second being a new light installation at the Fields of Uxbridge.

The consensus seemed to be for the second project, as the addition of lighting would allow later use of the Pump Park and Skate Park , as well as later evening field sports. The Community Building Fund grant awards up to $500,000 to support repairs, retrofitting, and renovations to existing sport and recreation facilities.

Amanda Ferraro, Director of Community Services for the Township of Uxbridge, stated, “We want to maximize the use of our facilities by extending their hours, extending the life of these facilities and improving accessibility.”

Results of the application are expected to be released in January 2022.
