    Ken Sturgeon Park - Basketball Court/Ice Rink
    Construction Commencement Notice

    Please be advised that the Town has received all approvals for the construction of the Ken Sturgeon Basketball Court/Ice Rink.  In an effort to improve Newmarket's parks and provide better amenity spaces, the Town will construct a new dual purpose basketball court/ice rink in Ken Sturgeon Park adjacent to and between the existing playground and baseball diamond.

    The project will consist of high-end tempered glass backboards, chainlink fencing, concrete curbing, outdoor plastic court surface, metal benches, Town Standard tri-waste, a water hydrant next to the court for ease of flooding for the ice rink, and accessible entrances in both the summer and winter for the different uses.

    Construction is scheduled to start as early as Wednesday November 1, 2017 subject to weather, site conditions, and successful contract execution.  Project completion is estimated for December 2017.

    The existing park will remain open and fully functional during most of the construction of the basketball court/ice rink.

    Should you have any further questions and/or concerns regarding this project, please contact Mike Dartizio Stantec at 905-944-6265 or Mike Ashworth at the Town of Newmarket at the number listed below.
