Town Completes Major Sports Field Upgrade

Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino, Councilman Lou Imbroto, Town Clerk Richard LaMarca and Tax Receiver Jeffrey Pravato announce the competition of baseball field improvements at Haypath Park in Plainview. The Town of Oyster Bay upgraded the natural surface infield to a synthetic turf playing area.

“These important upgrades enhance the overall playing experience for our little leaguers and others who use these fields,” said Supervisor Saladino. “These upgrades are being achieved in the most cost-effective way while bringing added enjoyment to all who use them.”

Artificial turf fields have a general useful life of up to 10 years, however they are less expensive than the long-term cost of maintaining natural grass and a dirt surface. Turf fields also provide the potential for fewer cancellations of games due to inclement weather, as the field is able to absorb rain storms in a manner that is not possible on a fully-dirt infield.

“Replacing the infield with synthetic turf allows for extended play time for athletes and brings a significant upgrade to this beautiful park,” said Councilman Imbroto. “We are pleased to bring these enhancements to the Plainview community while keeping a watchful eye on our bottom line.”
