Work on Summerside's artificial turf multi-use sports field is expected to be complete by mid November.

Construction of the field, situated north of Willow Avenue adjacent to Credit Union Place, began two weeks ago.

Also being constructed are three tennis courts and two beach volleyball courts located south of Willow Avenue, also adjacent to Credit Union Place.

Summerside's chief administrative officer Terry Murphy said another area has been set aside for possible development of a second artificial-turf field.

The entire project, being constructed for the 2009 Canada Games, has an estimated price tag of $2.9 million.

Contracted to do the work is Charlottetown-based company, Island Coastal Services, with funding from the three levels of government along with the Canada Games Host Society.
