Crown Point, IN, August 11, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- The City of Crown Point Indiana is beaming with pride as the final touches of a multi-million dollar sports complex is set to be completed. The 95 acre facility, fully equipped with restrooms and a concession stand, features 2 football/soccer fields that are easily accessible due to entrance and parking renovations also recently completed. The city hosts numerous organized little league games, estimating over 1000 kids currently playing on the fields. The need for a high end artificial turf surface was evident, and FieldTurf was deemed the only sensible choice for Crown Point.
“We’ve installed the very latest FieldTurf developed for sports play,” said Parks & Recreation director Jennie Burgess. “The Revolution fiber was introduced after years of experimentation and development. It’s the newest product available, and has been proven to be the strongest fiber of its type.”
These strong sentiments expressed by the parks department signify the quality reputation FieldTurf continues to be known for. The Revolution fiber has been designed to be the most durable of its kind, an important necessity when such a large amount of users play on the surface every day. FieldTurf’s patented infill formula ensures players’ safety and traction is constantly where it needs to be – making it the most player-friendly surface in the marketplace.
Along with providing the highest return on investment because of its ability to outlast competing artificial turf systems while maintaining proper performance, FieldTurf requires significantly less maintenance than natural turf and completely eliminates the need for watering, making it environmentally-friendly as well.
FieldTurf products have made for blue chip investments for thousands of sports complexes, municipalities and schools nationwide. Based on average figures derived from the last 10 years of industry data, FieldTurf has saved organizations over $15,000/field more than competing systems and $65 more per hour of use compared to each natural grass field.
Crown Point is not the only community in the area to take notice of the FieldTurf Advantage. Over 30 other organizations across the State of Indiana have selected FieldTurf for their athletic surfacing needs. The Indianapolis Colts, Ball State University, Indiana State University, Notre Dame University, and Purdue University in addition to dozens of community and high school fields highlight part of the positive footprint FieldTurf has had throughout the state.
