Fort Hamilton High School Track & Field

Fort Hamilton High School Track & Field

New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, Brooklyn, New York

Limited space at Fort Hamilton High School required multiple use of areas, and increased wear and tear. The track and field design featured low-maintenence, high-performance materials, with a poured-in-place synthetic track system and a long-fiber synthetic turf with rubber granular infill, impact cushioning, and under drainage. Cutout areas in the turf allowed for seasonal adaptation of the field from football/soccer to baseball/softball to support a full high school athletic schedule. Movable spectator bleachers provided additional program flexibility.
