Evergreen Field Gets Lights, Prepares for Synthetic Turf

May 2020 Update

The Evergreen synthetic turf football and soccer field is full steam ahead. Check out the new light poles installed in May. Synthetic turf is expected to get unrolled in June. We expect the field to be completed this summer.

Workers are preparing the new field, inside the existing track, between Evergreen High School and Cascade Middle School. 

School-related construction projects are within the category of public works and may continue with precautions in place to limit the spread of COVID-19. The earthwork is being performed by a limited number of construction workers.

Funding Information

We are grateful for the following grants totaling $700,000 to help fund the $1.84 million synthetic turf field and $423,500 lighting project:

  • $450,000 from two King County Parks' Youth and Amateur Sports grants

  • $250,000 from the NFL Foundation Grassroots Program and the Local Initiative Support Corporation (LISC)

The remaining costs will be covered with Highline Public Schools’ non-bond capital funds.
