Burien wants to upgrade Moshier Park with artificial turf

Moshier Field is a popular sports and recreation location at 430 South 156th Street in central Burien. In a proposal by the city of Burien, around 100,800 square meters of artificial turf will be installed.

Information from the city of Burien

The city of Burien proposes a project to ensure rainwater management for a catchment area around Moshier Park and to improve the sports fields and toilet facilities in the park for year-round use.

This 15.2 acre community park is located at 430 South 156th Street in central Burien, next to Highline High School in central Burien. The park shares parking with the Moshier Arts Center on the southwest border.

The multi-purpose sports field accommodates 4 lighted grass softball / baseball fields with a size of 250 to 300 feet, 2 lighted grass fields with a length of 120 meters, an asphalt path and a toilet.

Additional lawns are used by youth football and soccer for practicing.

Leisure improvements include replacing an existing natural grass ball field with artificial turf. Approximately 100,800 square feet of artificial turf will be installed. Water quality is provided for rainwater runoff from pollution generating impermeable and permeable surfaces within the project site before the runoff enters the 18-inch city storm line. Under the proposed conditions, the stormwater flow and water quality control facilities will treat both the Moshier Park property and the Highline School District property off-site. The project’s construction activities include sorting, new storm sewers, new rainwater treatment systems, paving and landscaping. The existing bathroom structure will be demolished and replaced by a new toilet and concession building.
