 The Citywide Parks Master Plan identifies the replacement of nearly six acres of grass turf currently utilized as sports fields at the eastern end of Sportsfield Park with all-weather fields constructed from synthetic grass-like material.  The Synthetic Turf Fields will have the capacity to provide two regulation soccer fields but will also allow for the flexible layout of additional fields as needed.               Synthetic Fields
