Matney Park Turf Replacement

Matney Park Synthetic Turf Athletic Field

In January 2022, Town Council approved an equipment and services acquisition agreement with Academy Sports Turf to replace the synthetic turf on the athletic field at Matney Park. This project was identified as a priority in the department's 2019-2024 Capital Improvement Plan and will address a 180-foot by 300-foot athletic field originally installed in 2007 that has exceeded its projected lifespan of approximately 8 to 10 years.

Parks, open space and trails located within the Town of Castle Rock contribute to quality of life and enhance community character. The Council-approved Parks and Recreation Master Plan identifies the need to assess and plan lifecycle replacements at existing facilities to sustain current levels of service, ensure user safety and continue to meet resident expectations.

Academy is a leading supplier of synthetic turf systems and is a TenCate Grass Company, having long-standing experience in the development, manufacture, construction, installation and maintenance of synthetic turf systems with over 400 field installations.

Site work has commenced and will include:

  • The removal of the existing turf
  • Adding crushed gravel
  • Installing pile fiber turf
  • Connecting turf seams

The project will be completed as soon as possible to open for sports use, likely in late spring or early summer.
