Description:

The new turf has been installed and the sports fields were open to the public on November 7, 2017!

The Perrigo Park synthetic turf play field areas were constructed in 2004 as part of the first phase of park development from raw land. The installation of over 230,000 square feet of synthetic turf has allowed the play fields to be available year-round. The synthetic turf fields were a major component of Perrigo Park becoming one of the City’s most visited recreational facilities.

The existing play field turf has been removed and replaced with a new state-of-the-art synthetic turf with cork infill over a new impact shock pad. Impact absorption testing on the newly installed field indicates a significant improvement in ground impact adsorption over the old. The new turf and shock pad provide a much safer surface for City park patrons.

The turf is warranted for 8 years and the shock pad is warranted for 25 years. The longer shock pad life allows for future replacement of only the turf, saving money and reducing field down time. The turf replacement contract came in under budget at a final cost of $2,054,000.
