Local Little Leaguers joined the Maple Ridge – Pitt Meadows Board of Education and Maple Ridge City Council for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially open Golden Ears Field on Thursday (April 4, 2019).
The new turf field, created through a partnership between the municipality and school district, is located between Golden Ears Elementary and the Arthur Peake Centre at 23125 – 116 Avenue.
“Golden Ears Field is a valuable addition for everyone in Maple Ridge. More field space means more games and more participation, creating a more connected community,” said Korleen Carreras, chairperson of the Maple Ridge – Pitt Meadows Board of Education.
“This is an excellent example of great teamwork and a shared vision resulting in a benefit to the school district, sports user groups, and the community. Our children and youth will benefit from being physically active, and will also learn valuable life lessons about teamwork, leadership and good sportsmanship.”
