City of Plano Russell Creek Park Multipurpose Field Renovations

After successfully building four turf soccer fields at another complex, Paragon Sports Constructors was selected to provide turn-key construction of two more soccer fields on another popular city park in Plano, Russell Creek Park. Paragon Sports Constructors was chosen for providing the best pricing and establishment of a previously successful and cooperative working relationship.

“Russell Creek Park is one of the largest multi-purpose facilities in the State of Texas with 150 acres of sports turf. Events are held there on the majority of weekends throughout the year; therefore, the synthetic fields will help increase the number of available game slots for our community.

Kevin Murray, City of Plano Assistant Park Superintendent

project needs

With the high demand for year-round use of Russell Creek Park, the City of Plano needed an all-weather synthetic turf to help eliminate down time caused by rain and unpredictable weather patterns. The consistent use of the previous natural turf fields made any type of recovery or additional maintenance practices untenable when working to fulfill their community’s needs. The two new synthetic fields installed at Russell Creek brings Plano’s synthetic turf field inventory up to six, providing additional flexibility and a decrease in maintenance for more soccer and lacrosse games to be played.

“Building synthetic turf fields is an incredibly involved process that involves numerous steps and takes several months to complete. Getting every aspect of the construction correct is paramount to the playability and longevity of the product. Paragon is obsessive with the quality of their work, and they also happen to be the nicest, most accommodating people you will ever work with.”

Kevin Murray, City of Plano Assistant Park Superintendent

scope of work

The turf fields at Russell Creek Park were part of a larger park renovation managed by Dean Construction. Paragon Sports Constructors executed turn-key installation of the athletic field package. The scope included sub-grade preparation, drainage system installation, new performance pad, synthetic turf, performance infill and new field equipment.
