Linway Terrace Park Gets New Synthetic Turf Field

From Fairfax County Park Authority:

On Saturday, November 5, 2010, county and state officials gathered with members of the Fairfax County Park Authority Board, youth sports enthusiasts, and neighbors to mark the completion of a synthetic turf field conversion project at Linway Terrace Park in McLean, VA. A ceremonial ribbon was cut and speakers reflected on the importance of partnerships and finding creative ways to meet the recreational needs of an active community.

The rectangular field, which had suffered from overuse before being converted to synthetic turf, now provides a safe, level, weather resistant playing surface that requires less maintenance.

The $840,000 capital improvement project was funded by the McLean Youth Soccer Association and the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors’ Mini Grant program, which is administered by the Department of Neighborhood and Community Services. The project also included installation of bleacher and bench pads, installation of goal posts, the addition of a fully-accessible asphalt trail, improved field drainage, and landscaping. 

The field at Linway Terrace Park marks the 23rd field to be converted to synthetic turf in the past few years. Through innovative partnerships throughout the community, the Fairfax County Park Authority and the Fairfax County Athletic Council continue to address the existing shortage of rectangular fields in the county. 

Linway Terrace Park is located at 6246 Linway Terrace in McLean, VA.
