Masich Place Track Now Open
Prince George, B.C. – The arrival of spring brings a corresponding gradual opening up of outdoor civic facilities to the public.
The track at Masich Place Stadium is now open for the year, with access available from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Sunday. You should note, however, that the grass infield is closed to the public and will remain that way until further notice.
Meantime, members of Prince George city council will decide at their meeting Monday night whether to approve an application for $3.5 million from a $28 million fund created by the Union of B.C. Municipalities to provide money for projects outside of the lower mainland region. The UBCM fund is derived from the federal gas tax.
The $3.5 million would go toward a host of renovations at the rapidly-deteriorating stadium, including a synthetic infield, soccer and football field, removing berms outside the track and installing chain link fencing, among other items.
The City has already set aside half a million dollars to resurface the aging track.
