The Salt Lake District desired to install a new turf field using a sand-based soil. The renovation of the adjacent track, practice field and softball field outfield were included as part of the project. A new soccer field replaced the existing field. Retaining walls provided for not only a larger replacement

Field, but also the construction of proper slopes and grades.  A modified USGA sand base was selected and installed over a herringbone drainage system. A new perimeter underground drain removes water from the field at a rate of 12-18” per hour. The existing track was entirely reconstructed, and a high-grade Mondo system provided.  The existing practice field was also renovated, including the irrigation system and removable goal posts.  The new soccer field provides a field slightly smaller than a world cup sized field. A new retaining wall and reconstruction of the existing parking area allows for the addition of the soccer field in this area.
