Aldergrove park gets a facelift

Community grants, donations, and hard work by volunteers have made playing and watching soccer a better experience at Aldergrove Athletic Park.

On July 19, a recognition ceremony was held to officially open the new improvements to the east synthetic turf field at the park, located at 29 Avenue and 267B Street.

Two players’ seating areas, two goal storage areas, and a concrete spectators’ seating area on the west side of the turf field – a value of about $16,000 – were added thanks to community members who worked in conjunction with Township of Langley staff.

The project was funded by Aldergrove Credit Union members Brian Thomasson and Joe Breier, Aldergrove United Soccer Club, and the Aldergrove Youth Soccer Club, which utilized a Township of Langley Neighbourhood Initiative Program matching grant. The total cost of the work was covered by donations and matching funds.

“It is great to see the continued support and effort from the community going towards improving this park,” said Al Neufeld, the Township’s Manager of Parks Design and Development. “The result will be a great benefit to all those who use this field.”
