Over 120,000 square feet of new baseball infield, outfield & warning track was installed and the field reopened in April 2015. The new synthetic turf outfield will be available for more recreational opportunities including soccer & lacrosse.
The City now has two synthetic fields in its inventory - Joe Martin and
Civic Stadium. Over 400 events are scheduled at Civic Stadium each year.
Given the limited playable season for natural grass fields, a new
all-weather synthetic turf field at Joe Martin was needed to accommodate the
increase in demand for year-round playable fields.
Joe Martin Field is located within the Civic Athletic Complex, which is comprised of various sports venues for community athletics, including a football stadium, softball fields, indoor ice skating/soccer arena, recreational trails, skatepark, & lighted parking lots.
