The Turf Field Project
Public-Private Partnership Reaps Big Dividend for District
OCTOBER, 2007 - A new synthetic turf field was installed this summer and fall at the site of the Roslyn High School football field, thanks to a grant of $650,000 from the Roslyn Bulldogs Booster Association. The field is used by boys' and girls' teams playing both varsity and JV soccer and lacrosse, in addition to football and other school activities such as the Marching Bulldogs.
Built on layers of sand and gravel and with a comprehensive drainage system, the field can be used in all weather and all seasons and requires little maintenance. The contractor, The Landtek Group, has installed similar turf fields at many high schools, colleges and other public facilities in the region.
The photographs below show the progress of the work, which began in mid-August and was completed on schedule and in time for Homecoming on October 13, 2007.
