Construction of the field began on May 6 and its inauguration is scheduled for mid-July.
“This new multisport synthetic mini-pitch in Parc du Moulin, accessible to all citizens, adds to our actions to create more sports and family spaces on the island. [...] This is exactly the kind of initiative that facilitates access to sports and improves the quality of life in the neighborhoods, ”said the mayor of Laval, Stéphane Boyer.
The Montreal Impact Foundation aims to “organize and support activities to improve the quality of life of children and families from disadvantaged backgrounds”.
