The North Tahoe Public Utility District (NTPUD) announced that its “field #4” at North Tahoe Regional Park, formerly used for soccer only, now features synthetic turf and can accommodate a number of new sports and activities.
“The installation of this new Legion turf system in our North Tahoe Regional Park significantly enhances the recreational offerings we can provide to our community,” said NTPUD Administrative Manager Loren R. Holt.
The NTPUD installed a total of 106,000 square feet Legion Pro synthetic turf. Legion is a combination of high-performance monofilament fibers and a durable slit film fiber. Legion Pro uses Bolt, a premium lightning-bolt-shaped monofilament fiber.
The field was also expanded in size by an additional 34,000 square feet. It is now a full-size NCAA/NAIA-sanctioned field, and can accommodate early season high school practice for baseball and softball, as well as outdoor recreation for area youth.
Installation of the synthetic turf systems at North Tahoe Regional Park were completed in August and a grand opening is scheduled for September 17.
