St. George’s School Athletic Field Improvements
Plagued with poorly draining athletic fields and unsafe playing conditions, SMRT assisted the school in developing a new athletic vision for the scenic campus, overlooking Rhode Island Sound. The vision included the construction of new natural grass and multiple synthetic turf fields, new tennis facilities, parking, and other athletic venue support facilities.
Beginning in 2017, the school implemented Phase One, constructing two regulation synthetic turf fields to support football, soccer, and lacrosse programs. The varsity baseball field was also relocated to the north end of the campus to reduce the danger from errant foul balls.
All work was completed in one summer, allowing uninterrupted student play on the fields.
Phase Two included the reconstruction of the tennis facilities and parking area improvements.
The school now has state-of-the-art athletic fields in the heart of campus. The central locations allow recreational use of the field areas when formal athletic programs are not scheduled.
