Cadman Turf Worn Out…. Already?

Our Karl Junkersfeld gets to the bottom of the Cadman Plaza turf issue after a BHB commenter said it looked like it was showing wear after our snowy winter.

    I use Cadman Field daily — unless I get kicked off by the soccer teams.

    The field this Spring (is it spring?) seems to be falling apart. When you fall down on it for example, all these little plastic green bits of “grass” attach to you like little burrs. Not painful or itchy, but you def have to throw everything in the laundry when you get home or it’s all over the house.

    If you’re an adult and you’re walking on it, it’s fine. But I suspect it will need to be replaced in a year or two.

    I thought the whole point of the artificial turf was that it would last forever, require no maintenance and stand up to use. Seems like we might have gone with real grass after all?

    Wait. Let me find a user group to target and blame them. Hopefully, I’ll be able to get all self-righteous and indignant and point the finger later today.

    Not sure if you are referring to the poop shot. If you are, I was careful not to attack a dog owners in general, but an irresponsible owner, meaning one individual. Review the tape.

    Dog owners in the Heights are tremendously responsible and deserve the highest praise. Believe me when i say I wasn’t attacking dog owners in general but just that one individual.

    I wasn’t, Karl.

    I am a dog owner and walk my dog in Cadman Plaza except on the turf. DOGS DO NOT BELONG ON THE TURF!

    I didn’t mean to blame the soccer teams. I don’t think they’re to blame. They don’t wear spikes, do they? I suspect the product is just faulty. The stuff the parks dept put down last year in the newer parks was a much nicer product (and doesn’t cause cancer.. lol).

    As an aside, I have no issue with the soccer teams. Just wish they had a formal schedule so I wouldn’t get the kids all geared up for a little Red Rover and then 5 minutes later, we all get thrown off. If I knew ahead of time, I’d make plans. I’m flexible!

    You didn’t LocalMom. It was a pre-emptive strike.
