There’s new turf on the upper soccer field at Hearst Park. It’s the most substantial improvement at the park since the playground underwent a major renovation in 2009, and Hearst’s small rec center was spruced up in 2010.
It’s a welcome change. The previous field was more dirt (and sometimes mud) than grass.
As the Department of Parks and Recreation considers other improvements, a group of neighbors and park boosters is asking the community: What would you like to see improved and added to the park? Help shape a future Hearst Park by filling out a brief survey. One of the questions is even about a potential outdoor pool for Ward 3.
