Installation of leading-edge synthetic turf is almost complete at the newly constructed South Walpole Community Athletic Complex. This 26-acre recreation facility features four natural grass baseball fields and now, two multi-sport fields that feature Shaw Sports Turf.

Shaw Sports Turf partnered with R.A.D. Sports, a family-owned business that specializes in the construction of high-quality athletic and recreation facilities, to complete the installation. Both companies worked together to ensure the project was completed on time and met the utmost in quality standards.

The Legion product line is made from slit film fiber and premium monofilament fiber, resulting in a great balance of traction, foot stability, ball roll and aesthetics. There are currently 84 Legion installations in New England.
The fields will be used for lacrosse, soccer, field hockey and football. Construction was completed at the end of March 2021. The first activity took place on the synthetic field portion of the complex in late November of 2020 by members of Walpole Youth Soccer.
