Totowa, NJ - In the true spirit of teamwork, the Totowa Mayor, Council, and Department of Recreation came to the recent decision to move forward with the installation of Shaw Sports Turf on Totowa PAL Field. This exciting renovation will take the town’s beloved field, used for both baseball and football, to the next level in sports technology.
“This will give added healthy value to our Totowa Borough community,” said Mark Monteyne, Totowa Borough Recreation Director, in an interview with Our Town Totowa. “Our families will love it for years to come, making life memories for all,” added Monteyne.
In total, 119, 233 square feet of Shaw Sports Turf’s Legion NXT turf will be installed at Totowa Field. Legion NXT is a hybrid system that offers realistic aesthetics with an electrifying degree of durability. This system is built for strength, built for pushing the envelope and providing endurance through even the toughest of match-ups.
Shaw Sports Turf has partnered with Athletic Fields of America, one of most prominent field builders in the Tri-State Region, to handle the complete transformation of the field. The well-known, New Jersey based construction company won the project through a town open bid process administered by the Totowa Borough Clerk, Joe Wassel. Athletic Fields of America is in the current process of leveling the field, putting in the drainage system, and adding the fencing and netting. Turf installation will follow soon after initial site work is completed.
“The current field has been used for as long as we can remember. The new multipurpose turf field can provide use after inclement weather and will be available more days of year,” said Monteyne.
Installation is set to be completed by early next year. Both Totowa’s baseball and football programs will be able to use the field for games and practices.
“Like many metropolitan towns with lack of field space, The Borough of Totowa is turning to synthetic turf to provide an all-weather surface for their many sports activities at Totowa PAL field site. This exciting project for Totowa has been the result of several years of planning, and Shaw Sports Turf is pleased to be proving the synthetic turf portion,” said Lee DeFreitas, Shaw Sports Turf Territory Manager.
