Build an out door running track
It would be amazing for children, youth, adult, and master track and field/xc running/triathlon athletes to have a track closer than Midland or Toronto to train on.
I have heard that the City may be willing to partner with a private organization/business or group but I am surprised I haven't heard more on the subject.
It would also make it easier not only for young athletes to develop while in school but also for local schools to host meets/events.
This city of Barrie Park is called Red Storey Field and has a track.
Eastview would be a great location!
