Field official opening postponed

The winter weather has caused the City of New Westminster to postpone the official opening of its new artificial turf field in Queen's Park.

It was supposed to be held tomorrow (Saturday) morning, but on Wednesday morning to delay it. Parks boss Dean Gibson said the department is targeting a Feb. 4 opening involving youth lacrosse and soccer.

"We want to be able to do it outside and show it off and right now it just looks like a white field in Alberta," said Gibson.

Although it has not had its official opening, the field has been used since Dec. 10.
