Improvement For Chapples Park

Three local sports organizations are calling on city council for a revitalization of Chapples Park: Soccer Northwest says potential developments could see a new indoor soccer facility created, along with several new all-weather fields created in the park. The Thunder Bay Chill say that conditions are not adequate for their PDL team. President Tony Colistro says there are many issues with their current home field, including drainage and lighting problems. The Thunder Bay Community Tennis Centre are also looking to build indoor facilities to accommodate their growing membership. The city will look at the feasibility of these projects in 2015.
