Great news! The SERA multi-purpose field project is nearing completion, thanks to our incredible supporters.
Construction has been in progress throughout the summer and early fall on the project. The artificial turf field is now done, and the lights are installed.
The contractors are on schedule to complete work on the field by early November. As Metro Parks’ first artificial turf field, it will be available for sports enthusiasts year-round after its official opening.
In addition to generous gifts from individual donors, the Greater Metro Parks Foundation received over $260,000 from private foundations, including Names Family Foundation, Norcliffe Foundation, Dimmer Family Foundation, DV & Ida McEachern Charitable Trust, Ben B. Cheney Foundation, and Totem Ocean Trailer Express.
The Metro Parks Board of Commissioners also recently accepted a $500,000 grant from the Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office for this project.
The grand opening of the field will be held in January.
