The LandTek Group Replaces Grass Field at Birchwood Park With Synthetic Turf.
Babylon, NY — Newsday reports the Town of Babylon has finished refurbishing a Deer Park athletic field that was one of the first park fields that the town converted from grass to synthetic turf.
Work on the multiuse field at Birchwood Park, off Sunburst Drive, wrapped up at the end of May, said Deputy Town Supervisor Tony Martinez.
Martinez said the conversions were made starting in 2004 because the turf requires less maintenance and eliminates the need for pesticides, but the fields have a limited life. The Birchwood field came with a 10-year warranty, and last year the town noticed that the fibers had started to disintegrate and that the lines were faded.
“We decided to prioritize it to be renovated,” Martinez said.
The town hired LandTek of Amityville to replace the 370-by-225-foot field, which is used for football, lacrosse and soccer. They also replaced a grassy 60-by-150-foot practice area adjacent to the field with synthetic turf.
