Turf Renovation and Enhancement

The Department has temporarily closed athletic fields at six parks for turf renovation and enhancements. The closures will allow crews to conduct much needed maintenance including aerating, fertilizing, over-seeding, irrigation testing and repairs, and removal of in-field lip build up (on baseball/softball diamonds). The turf also needs to rest. Temporary fencing has or will be installed to protect renovated areas as the seed needs an opportunity to establish sufficient roots and grow in preparation for future sports seasons. Renovations are currently underway at Brookside, Brenner, Jefferson, McDonald, Victory and Villa Parks. 
Work will be completed in two phases. Projects in phase one will conclude on either September 8 or 30, and phase two is currently scheduled to conclude on December 14. A list of impacted parks and fields is below. Work in Area H is anticipated in phase two, but an exact schedule is not yet available.
