As school resumes following the holiday break, students will enjoy the newly installed artificial turf at the Rosa Hernandez Girls Softball Field on Kennedy Drive. This means that the girls playing this 30th season on the field will have a modern, mud-free surface to play on.
The City Commission voted unanimously in September to move forward on the project as part of the City’s efforts to improve green and recreational spaces
The City is working to transition to artificial turf for ballfields. They are easier to maintain and provide a better surface for the people using them. This turf is composed of organic material, unlike some types of artificial turf that are made of rubber. That means the fields will be the same temperature as grass ballfields.
