New plastic turf laid at Garfield, opens within a week

The new artificial turf is laid down on the infield of the baseball diamond at the Garfield playfield, and crews were out there this morning putting on the finishing touches.

Parks Department spokesperson Karen O’Connor tells us that the recent weather has slowed things down a bit, but they’re trying to get the site cleaned up and inspected, and hope to take down the construction fences by the end of this week. That would be just in time for the T-ball season that kicks off next week.

The $110,000 project was partially funded by a $45,000 grant from the King County Youth Sports Facility program, and included contributions of labor and materials from Ohno Construction and the Field Turf company.
