New Turf Football Fields

On Friday, July 14, the City of Broken Arrow, along with the Broken Arrow Youth Football Association, will celebrate the opening of two new artificial turf fields at the Nienhuis Football Complex, 3201 N. 9th Street. 


Broken Arrow voters approved construction of the turf fields as part of the 2014 General Obligation bond package. The cost to install the artificial turf was $1.2 million. BA Youth Football contributed $50,000. 


Football and lacrosse teams plan to utilize the fields year-round.


“It’s rare to find city-owned turf playing fields for leagues to play on, so we’re thrilled that the voters of Broken Arrow supported a financing package to convert grass fields into artificial turf for our kids,” said Chad Lott, President of the Broken Arrow Youth Football Association.


The new turf fields provide many advantages over regular grass fields, which can wear out over time and have to continually be maintained. Turf fields allow for almost unlimited usage, and heavy rainfall does not impact field conditions.


“The accessibility of youth sports is what draws many families to live in Broken Arrow,” said Parks and Recreation Director Scott Esmond. “These new turf fields will take the football and lacrosse experience to a whole new level, and the City is proud to partner with BA Youth Football to make this happen.”


WHAT:          Ribbon cutting for City of BA’s first artificial turf fields

WHEN:          Friday, July 14 at noon

WHERE:        Nienhuis Football Complex, 3201 N. 9th Street
