Completion delayed for Near West Playfield upgrade

The Division of Recreational Sports has announced a delay in the completion of the Near West Playfield upgrade project.  The completion was estimated to be the week of Thanksgiving, but now will finish in the spring.

The project sustained many delays in August and September due to frequent and heavy rains.  The current temperatures and recent rain have prevented the completion of the synthetic turf installation.  The expectation is that once temperatures rise in the spring, the installation of the synthetic turf on the site can be completed within 2-3 weeks.  Follow updates on the Rec Sports Master Plan.
