Lloydminster, AB/SK – The City of Lloydminster is dedicated to providing residents with indoor and outdoor recreational opportunities and facilities. As part of this commitment, the City invites the greater Lloydminster community to participate in the outdoor sporting complex study, which will set the vision and development for
the Driven Energy Legion Ball Park and VLA Soccer Fields.
The study will comprehensively review the project site’s existing sporting fields, surrounding spaces, infrastructure and programming opportunities. It will provide recommendations on expansion, redevelopment, maintenance and enhanced services over the next 10 to 15 years to create a unified site for everyone to enjoy.
The Driven Energy Legion Ball Park currently features six diamonds, associated infrastructure/facilities, outbuildings, group storage structures, maintenance grounds, walking trails, picnic areas and a playground. Similarly, the VLA Soccer Field site includes three full-size soccer pitches and user group storage structures.
While the two facilities operate independently, they have minor connections via pedestrian access.
How to get involved
The project seeks input from residents and community partners. Lloydminster residents are encouraged to participate in the study by one of the following three options:
