The Greater Saint John Field House Project, is proud to announce the support of three of Saint John’s most notable prominent hotels and the city’s hotel association. The Best Western, Delta Hotel and the Hilton in partnership with the local Saint John Hotel Association have come together to contribute $10,000 from each hotel and a matching contribution of $30,000 from the hotel association.
The field house project will feature two turf pitches for field sports, a running track, a community centre and daycare, and multi-purpose space for the community to use. These latest donations increase the community commitment helping push the project to a total of over $23 Million. The hotel association saw great opportunities to increase our sport tourism business and the members are pleased to support the field house through matching donations made by their members.
“These latest donations just reinforce this facility’s potential to attract sporting events and its value to the hotel industry,” says Bill MacMackin, Project Leader.
Phase one involves the construction of all the field house components plus some site improvements for the Exhibition Park property is expected to begin in late 2017 and be open for use in the fall of 2019.
