Evergreen Playfield #1 (22205 56th Avenue W) was closed this past Monday, January 18 to commence construction of a new synthetic turf athletic field.
The project will replace the existing dirt field with a synthetic turf playing surface and create an upgraded ADA access with dugouts, fencing and other amenities. The construction will also include the installation of drainage, base materials, infill, and a synthetic “grass” surface. The work is being completed by FieldTurf, a national leader in synthetic sports fields.
When complete, the new Evergreen Playfield #1 will provide the community with a year-round playing surface designed for multiple sports including baseball, softball, soccer, lacrosse, and ultimate disc. The site has new LED lighting that was installed last summer that will allow for extended playable hours.
The completed field will be the first city-owned synthetic turf facility and will be available to a variety of local sports clubs sometime this spring.
