More information from the Town of Cary, NC
The Town of Cary continually experiences demand for multi-purpose fields throughout the Town. The development of synthetic turf fields will increase use and help the Town reduce the demand for field space. The Town currently does not have any sports turf fields available for its residents. Synthetic fields are comparable in terms of annual operating and maintenance costs, but they allow approximately two to three times the amount of play compared to a natural grass field. In addition, a synthetic turf sports field will reduce the amount of watering needed each year. Lastly, use of these fields eliminates the need for pesticides and fertilizers.
The project is to install two sports turf fields (synthetic turf) with lighting to replace existing natural grass fields. Thomas Brooks Park is designated to receive the new turf fields. The Capital Area Soccer League (CASL) and the Town of Cary are partnering to convert the two existing Town of Cary grass fields to artificial turf. CASL will reimburse the Town for the turf and the Town will provide lights and maintenance.
The Town currently does not maintain any synthetic turf fields. The Town does have a separate synthetic turf field project funded by Cary Community Investment Bonds. Learn more by visiting the Sports Turf Fields page.
According to the Synthetic Turf Council, synthetic turf can be utilized around 3,000 hours per year with no “rest” required, more than three times that of the average natural grass field. A minimum of 500,000 gallons of water is anticipated to be saved per field each year.
