Here's the information provided by staff:

Playing Fields Temporarily Close for Repairs on June 18

The Stanford/Palo Alto Community Playing Fields, located at Page Mill Road and El Camino Real, will be closed from June 18 through July 8, for maintenance repairs and the construction of backstop nets. The nets will be installed behind the goal areas to reduce the number of balls leaving the field.

Vance Brown Builders and its subcontractor, West Coast Netting, will install four 30-foot tall, 105-foot wide nets. The netting will be 4-inch mesh. Three 10-inch diameter poles for each net will be embedded in concrete.

During the net installation, Colony Landscape & Maintenance, Inc., will provide landscape and irrigation assistance. Colony will also make the various turf-related repairs and replace the turf infill of rubber pellets. The pellets keep the grass blades vertical and after use over a period of time need replacement.

For safety reasons, the field will be closed to all users during the project. If you would like more information, contact Khashayar “Cash” Alaee at (650) 463-4928.
