Courtcliffe Park contains a Citywide 16.66 ha sports park on the southern portion and a 23.56 ha natural open space on the northern portion separated by Bronte Creek. The former town of Flamborough prepared a Master Plan Report and a Stream Morphology Study in 2000 for Courtcliffe Park. Much of the passive area of the park has been restored with assistance from the community, Conservation Halton and the Courtcliffe Restoration Steering Committee. The original master plan report recommended an expansion of the soccer program to 6 fields. The overall shortage of soccer fields in the city requires a greater number of fields at Courtcliffe which can be accommodated through a re-orientation of the existing 5 fields. The new field program will upgrade all fields to current city standards and improve the field grading and site drainage. To allow the soccer program to remain in operation during the construction season the field expansion will be phased over 3 years.
