New Track and Field envisioned for West Van

The track and field at West Vancouver Secondary School has a rich history, having served the entire community for almost 70 years.  Today, however, it no longer meets the needs of our community, which would greatly benefit from a safe, modern facility located in the heart of West Vancouver.
A group of citizens who envision a new and much needed all season track and field, to be known as the West Vancouver Place for Sport, is preparing to introduce this proposed facility to our community. Construction is set to begin in the spring of 2017,

Join in and learn more about plans for this exciting new project.
Thursday, May 26th
7:00 - 8:30 pm
Kay Meek Centre for the Performing Arts
The program will include: "A Day in the Life of the West Vancouver Place for Sport", highlighting the many different activities that will take place at this new venue; presentations with inspiring music by the West Vancouver Youth Band and the West Vancouver School District Honour Choir and several well know sports personalities.
