With a goal to bolster facilities for its athletic teams and attract more students to the campus, SUNY Adirondack teamed with CSArch to develop a site master plan and transform the southern site of the campus into an outdoor athletic venue.
Lined to accommodate the college's lacrosse, soccer, baseball, and softball programs, the facility features a turf playing surface to withstand harsh weather conditions and address scheduling issues that previously impacted athletic teams' ability to enjoy season-long use.
Shortly after bids were awarded in May 2020, a hold was placed on public funding of capital projects and temporarily stalled construction of the multi-sport turf field at SUNY Adirondack. Nearly 3 years later, the college was able to officially open the long-awaited facility, which will enhance the student experience and support additional programs with little downtime in between.
In addition to supporting the development of junior college athletes, the $5.7 million project invests in the surrounding community by adding to the mix of regional destinations for sports events and tournaments.
