Georgetown Playfield Synthetic Turf Replacement

Fall 2022 Update

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) is happy to announce the Georgetown Playfield is open and the synthetic turf replacement project is complete. To allow time for the natural turf to establish, orange fencing is in place around hydroseeded areas. The fencing allows for access to the field, play area, tennis court and half-court basketball area.

The renovated field now has markings on the field for soccer and ultimate frisbee play. Additionally, the southeast corner of the field offers markings for games of kickball, softball, or baseball. All can be played without inserting bases.

SPR conducted condition assessments on all our synthetic turf fields in 2018 and the results of these assessments informed both immediate maintenance action on the part of our parks resources and turf crews as well as the order in which the projects were funded for replacement. Seattle Parks and Recreation is investing in state-of-the-art synthetic turf systems that are safe, playable, and durable. We continue to lead the way to developing and installing alternate synthetic turf field design sections/materials.

This project replaced the aging synthetic turf at Georgetown Playfield and made accessibility improvements. This included the removal of the old ‘worn out’ synthetic turf and ensured that field drainage is adequate. 2022 synthetic turf systems of sand and cork infill were installed for recreational play.
