Quantum Field Ribbon Cutting Brings New Turf to Tysons

Quantum Field Ribbon Cutting Brings New Turf to Tysons

Quantum Field officially opened last weekend and players will soon get the chance to enjoy this lighted, state-of-the-art synthetic turf rectangular field. Quantum Field and the adjacent parking lot were the result of a proffer agreement between the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, the Park Authority and The Meridian Group. Meridian designed and constructed the athletic field on a surface parking lot owned by Element Critical. The Fairfax Water Authority was a key player, assisting in the accommodation of nearby water mains. The field accommodates five sports on a 180’ by 360’ surface. The project also includes black vinyl perimeter chain link fencing, concrete walkways, bleacher pads, athletic field and parking lot lighting, sound containing walls and landscaping.
