THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS (July 8, 2016) – The renovation of the turfgrass and drainage system at Town Green Park commenced July 7, 2016. This new turf system will allow for better management of rain events, improved drainage and the ability to support high levels of pedestrian use. These improvements are due in part to the numerous community events being held at Town Green Park.
The project will consist of excavating approximately 5 inches of existing ground, then rebuilding with a drain system (sand and aggregate material), a 1.5-inch plastic grid system and then sodded with natural grass. This system will prevent compaction, allowing water to penetrate the soil and protect the crown of the grass plant. The overall result of these efforts will be decreased issues with turf quality, a reduction in muddy areas within the turf and an anticipated reduction in costs to renovate the turf, after events.
The renovation project began in Town Green Park on July 7, 2016, and is expected to take approximately two months, with an anticipated reopening by Labor Day weekend, 2016. A similar project is slated for Northshore Park at a later date.
