Artificial or Real?

Tambark Creek Park

Turf crumbs, artificial turf, synthetic turf


Snohomish County currently has one artificial turf field - Tambark Creek Park - built with mitigation funds given to Snohomish County by King County so that King County could build the Brightwater sewage plant in Snohomish County.

Snohomish County now wants to tear-up Wellington Hills Park and install four artificial turf fields with stadium lights.
