2 weeks ago, the Parks Department disclosed the turf put down during the renovations at Hiawatha Playfield had to be replaced because it was found to be defective. The replacement is now well under way; Tim McMonigle from the West Seattle Soccer Club got the above photo on Tuesday and reports:
After getting replacement turf for the defective product, they have the majority of the turf down. They are still rolling it out, and then need to spread the rubber pellets.
As you can see in the foreground of the first picture, they are moving bundles of sod and putting it in various areas outside the field. It’s looking good, and hopefully will be done for our league games in December.
