Lacrosse players will be able to play rain or shine in Port Moody with an upgraded lacrosse box.

The Westhill lacrosse box will be expanded to a 1,560-square metre multi-sport facility with a permanent roof, new fencing and improved player benches and spectator viewing areas. The facility's electrical works, lighting, pathways and drainage will also be upgraded.

The project will allow for year-round access to physical activity opportunities. Funding is coming from a $681,000 grant from the provincial Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development's Community Recreation Program.

"We are very excited the province is helping the city not only replace an aging facility, but provide upgrades to allow multi-sport and multi-seasonal use of the lacrosse box," said Mayor Mike Clay in a release.

Coquitlam-Burke Mountain MLA Doug Horne added the project will offer Tri-City residents an improved recreation facility for year-round use.

The $30-million Community Recreation Program was introduced by Premier Christy Clark last fall; it funds up to 80% of the cost for projects that enhance recreation.
