Currently, our middle and high school grass practice fields are so overused, they can no longer be maintained for student safety. Thanks to the generous support of LPS voters, at least one grass field at each of our three neighborhood high schools and four neighborhood middle schools will be replaced with durable and safe turf practice/playing fields. One grass field at Heritage High School, Arapahoe High School and Euclid Middle School were replaced with turf during the summer of 2019. These fields were chosen to be replaced first because they are already located inside of a track and are easier to replace. Turf fields at Powell Middle School and Options at Whitman (shared with Littleton Soccer Association and funded by LSA and LPS's capital improvement budget) were completed in 2020, and additional turf field projects will be completed during 2021, like a soccer field at Littleton High School and a softball field for Heritage at Euclid MIddle School. The bond includes one lighted field at all district high schools as well as some Title IX updates to current fields.
Installing a Turf Field - Start to Finish
A turf soccer field is being installed in the northwest portion of Brookridge Park north of LIttleton High School. The field is being placed in August 2021. Below is a plan for the site as of the spring of 2021. The turf field is expected to be available for sports by the end of September.
