Ellanor C. Lawrence Park - Athletic Fields, Trails, Picnic Areas
The synthetic athletic turf field complex at Ellanor C. Lawrence Park consists of soccer, baseball and softball fields, fitness stations and trails. Synthetic turf fields are considered state-of-the-art facilities. Synthetic turf fields provide a high quality playing surface that can be utilized throughout the year. With field shortages throughout the county, they serve as a partial solution to field space concerns as well as providing great playing conditions with minimal maintenance and superior site drainage.
