Shouldice artificial turf fields
Built in 2009, the artificial turf fields at Shouldice Athletic Park are premium regulation-size athletic fields available for booking to all interested rental groups from March to November, weather permitting.
Restoration & Resiliency Project
The 2013 Flood caused damage to all three artificial turf fields at Shouldice Athletic Park. While interim repairs allowed for their continued use, a permanent solution is required to ensure the longevity of the fields for future generations of athletes.

The surface is composed of monofilament polyethylene blend fibres tufted into a polypropylene backing. The infill is composed of a bottom layer of silica sand, a middle layer which is a mixture of sand and cryogenic rubber and a top layer of only rubber. The fibres are meant to replicate blades of grass, while the infill acts as a cushion. This cushion improves safety when compared to earlier artificial surfaces and allows players to plant and pivot as if they were playing on a grass field.
