Sports fields with synthetic turf will be closed at Perrigo Park from Aug. 15 through October for turf replacement.

The park was constructed in 2004 and included a 230,000 square feet of synthetic turf fields to facilitate year-round use. This has led to the park being one of the most widely visited in the City of Redmond, but after 13 years, the turf must be replaced.

According to a press release from the city, turf fibers at the park are excessively worn and need to be replaced in order to provide a safe surface. The warranty for the turf was eight years and it had an expected life cycle of up to 12 years.

During construction at the park, which is located at 9011 196th Ave. N.E., the sports field, north parking lot and meadow areas will be closed. The playground, pavilions and bathrooms will remain open.

The new turf system will have an eight-year warranty, and a shock pad that will be installed underneath the turf designed to move water below the turf surface will have a 25-year warranty.
