The final pieces of the puzzle are falling into place at Taurus Field.
 
Crews were recently finishing up the landscaping and the perimeter fence.
 
"There might be some small touch-up things here and there. You know, changing a switch out, but nothing substantial," said the city's director of project management, Grant Schaffer.
 
Minor clean-up is also underway.
 
The $9.6-million field will give local football teams something they haven't had in almost 20 years, a home game. Due to the Fort not having the required specifications, home games were played at Emerald Hills in Sherwood Park. The Fort High Sting will have four home games in 2018 at the newly-constructed field.
 
With room for 1000 spectators, the facility has a warm-up area, digital wireless scoreboard, concession stand and four expandable dressing rooms.
 
The field will also be used for rugby and soccer.
