LACOMBE ATHLETIC PARK ASSOCIATION

The Lacombe Athletic Park Association (L.A.P.A.) is a non-profit organization which is responsible for the facility development as well as the ongoing operation of the park. After entering into a sub-lease agreement wit the City of Lacombe, the L.A.P.A. managers the facilty for the City of Lacombe and handles marketing, booking, and the related operations of the park including all related expenses and the funding of a capital reserve. The L.A.P.A. is mandated to provide local groups subsidized rates to use the facility and to promote the park as a multi-use facility for local, regional and provincial sporting and cultural events. The Park includes a field house complete with change rooms with showers, a concession, public washrooms, and a spotting and media tower. The facility also offers two grandstands that seat 1500 spectators, a new score clock, and a field and track lighting system. The field has an artificial turf surface with lines marked for football, two mini soccer pitches, one regulation soccer pitch and a regulation Lacrosse field. The Gord Bamford Charitable Foundation supported the project from the very beginning, and is excited to share in this community success story.
