Set along Lake Michigan, Montrose Field was one of Chicago’s first artificial turf fields. Chicago Park District brought Upland Design in to lead the consultant team in renovation of this popular multi-use field. The existing system was reviewed and the stone base, drainage and curb were determined to be viable for reuse. The existing infill mix of rubber and sand and artificial turf carpet were completely removed. With minor restoration to the stone base and curb, new carpet and infill were brought in along with new multi-use goals and bleachers. New field markings include soccer, football and lacrosse to encourage high use of the field for the community. New accessible walks were added to connect seating areas with the existing parking and lakefront bike trail.
