Lobe Field 1 Improvements Phase 2 – Synthetic Turf

Category Overview

Local Parks grants help protect these symbols of vibrant communities, providing places for families to gather and play and promoting a healthy and active lifestyle in an era when people spend increasing amounts of their time inside. The WWRP is the largest source of local parks funding in Washington, helping communities fund the acquisition, development, and renovation of vital recreation areas and green spaces.

Project Highlights

The Kitsap County Parks and Recreation Department will use this grant to convert Lobe Field 1 to synthetic turf. By installing synthetic turf, Kitsap County would increase the field’s availability for sports teams and tournaments, especially during bad weather, and reduce maintenance costs. Kitsap County will contribute more than $1.4 million in, grants and donations of cash.
