Release Date: 2017-11-18

Councilwoman Lena Gonzalez is proud to announce that the new Astroturf Sports Field is now open at Seaside Park. Located at 1401 Chestnut Ave, the Seaside Park Project converted the old dirt sports field to .4 acress of synthetic turf. This turf is safer and cleaner for children to play on, preventing many accidents. The turf fiels is also very environmentally friendly, saving a lot of water, as it is not needed.

'I am looking forward to seeing the children and families out on this field, enjoying quality time together outside.' stated Councilwoman Gonzalez. 'I'd like to thank the Parks, Recreation & Marine, City Manager's Office and the Public Works teams for their work in implimenting this much needed outdoor area in the First District'.
