Santa Anita Park renovation and new community center

Project description:

Santa Anita Park ProjectSynthetic turf sports fields are needed in order to increase the program time on grass fields. Experience shows if grass fields are used more than 20 hours per week they will end up as a dirt field. At Santa Anita Park we have the ability to change an existing grass field to a synthetic turf field for the community.
