Seattle Parks and Recreation completes Georgetown Playfield turf replacement project

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) is pleased to announce that the Georgetown Playfield is open and the synthetic turf replacement project is complete. The renovated field now has on-field markings for soccer and the ultimate Frisbee game. Additionally, the southeast corner of the field offers markings for kickball, softball, or baseball games. All of them can be played without inserting bases.

To allow time for natural grass to establish, orange fencing is in place around hydroseeded areas. The fence allows access to the field, the playground, the tennis court and the basketball half court. Georgetown Playfield is located in southwest Seattle at 750 S Homer St., Seattle, WA 98108.

SPR awarded the construction contract to Coast to Coast Turf, Inc. which mobilized to the playing field in early June 2022 and substantially completed the project in late August 2022. This project replaced the aging synthetic turf on the field of game by advanced equipment. synthetic turf systems that provide a safe, playable and durable pitch. The project included the removal of old ‘worn out’ synthetic turf and structural repairs to curbs, basement and drainage. SPR continues to lead the way in the development and installation of alternative synthetic turf pitch design sections/materials.

SPR conducted condition assessments of all of our synthetic turf pitches in 2018 and the results of these assessments informed both immediate maintenance actions by our parks resources and turf crews as well as the order in which the projects were funded for the replacement.
