New Echo Lake Playfield Complete and Open for Use

Echo Lake Playfield

There’s something new at Echo Lake Elementary! A beautiful new turf playfield was recently completed at the school thanks to funds from a 2006 bond approved by voters.

The playfield includes a 60,000 square foot synthetic playing surface that is infilled with cork and sand. It includes multipurpose activity markings, including youth soccer, and is surrounded by a 1/5-mile asphalt walking path. The existing asphalt play area near the playfield was also refinished with several new play area markings and four new basketball backboards. New play chips were also added to the school’s playground as part of the project. 

While the playfield is closed to the public during school hours, it is available for community use outside of school and after-school program hours and is available for rent for organized sports leagues. 

The total cost of the project was $2.4 million.
