There has been a lot going on at the Squamish Legacy Sports Park over the past 2 months. Clearing and construction have begun in preparation for our first youth summer camp programs to be held this August.
A team of great contractors, club members and community organizations have been leading the charge and keeping activities rolling along. So far we have completed the following:
– Site clearing of pavilion/jump area, parking lot, and road allowance
– 10 lane biathlon range development including the purchase of 6 targets to supplement the 4 we currently own
– Installation of storage container/electrical room
– Rotary fund raising event
– Pavilion design
In the next 8 weeks we anticipate the following tasks being completed:
– Installation of underground hydro/network services
– Bridge construction/installation (between legacy park and range)
– Gravel surface for main trail/road and parking lot
– Completion of range firing line/trail access, installation of targets
– Training jump construction
– Pavilion construction
– Recognition Feature/signage
Although the site is closed due to construction activities you can get a sneak peak at the park by joining us for one or more of the upcoming work parties:
Sunday June 7 from 8:30am -12:30 – Biathlon firing line construction/target placement
June 20-21 from 8:30-12:30 – Jump/pavilion preparation/construction
