Farragut, Tenn. opened a new Synthetic Turf Field provided by SporTurf. The town of Farragut hired SporTurf’s dealer PLAYRITE, LLC to install a 71,200 sq. ft. synthetic turf athletic field at Mayor Bob Leonard Park for town residents to play soccer, lacrosse and other sports and games year-round.

Tired of natural grass athletic fields that require extensive and expensive maintenance and are often unplayable due to bad weather and overuse, Jay Smelser, Farragut’s athletic and park coordinator said, “It is a tremendous asset that we can offer to the community when we have a field that is essentially open every day.”

The synthetic turf field at Mayor Bob Leonard Park was funded, in large part, by a grant from the Local Parks and Recreation Fund that is administered by the Recreational Educational Services Division of the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation.
