Synthetic Turf Discussion

The Board of Commissioners was presented a Discussion Document from the Synthetic Turf Sub Committee on the idea of installing synthetic turf on both ball field infields (boys baseball and girls softball) in Keystone Park East. Each infield is approximately 1/4 acre in size. This document is a result of a proposal from River Forest Youth Baseball and Softball to donate $50,000 toward the installation of synthetic turf on the girls’ softball field in Keystone Park East. The Board agreed to continue conversations on the Discussion Document, to reach out to the Park District affiliate sports groups and the Village Sustainability Commission, and to hold a Public Hearing for resident feedback before the Board takes any action on the idea.
