Artificial Turf Replacement Beban Park Nanaimo


Work to prepare the field's surface for the new turf

One of the artificial turf fields at Beban Park will be sporting a brand new surface this fall with the installation of new artificial turf which also has a 3/4" shock pad beneath the turf. 

The new turf provides a number of improvements including natural grass-like look and feel and a better infill between the grass fibres providing impact absorbing cushioning and better traction. A stronger backing consisting of polypropylene fabrics will provide increased durability which gives the turf a life expectancy of 14 - 16 years.

The $600,000 project is expected to be ready for play in September. The old turf will be stored on-site and used around the community to possibly provide 'turf' on medians etc.

The artificial turf provides for much more useful time on the fields as they are not subject to the same wear and tead and maintenance issues which comes with natural grass during our wet winter season. A typical grass field may get 500 hours of use whereas the artificial turf is seeing nearly 2,000 hours of use which makes this one of the most used sports fields in Nanaimo.
