Lighted synthetic vs grass field comparison
Lighted Synthetic vs Grass Field Comparison Regional Park

  • Sixty Acres North Grass Field = 525 Playable Hours(5-month usage)

  • Sixty Acres South Grass Field = 346 Playable Hours(3-month usage due to other passive use)

  • LightedSynthetic Field = 3053 Playable Hours(12-month usage)

Lighted synthetics solution three times better than grass field solution
Lighted Synthetics Solution Regional ParkThree Times Better than Grass Field Solution

7-Grass Field Solution:

  • Capacity = 6 fields*

  • Estimated Usage= 4 fields**

    3-Lighted Synthetic Fields Solution:

  • Capacity = 16.4 fields***

  • Estimated Usage (75% Capacity) = 12.3 fields

    Results:

  • Grass Fields yield 1/3 estimated usage of Lighted Synthetics

  • Potential additional income is $180,000 annually (billable at $50/hr)

    * Measured in net Sixty Acres North Grass Field equivalents

    ** Usage diminished from 5 months to 3 months due to other passive uses

    *** MPTC = Maximum Peak Time Capacity, assuming play 6pm-10pm weekdays, all day weekends.
