The weathered turf at Maple Park Field will receive a much-needed facelift, and officials are confident the pending work will not interfere with any upcoming sports schedules.

The Ridgewood Council will formally vote Oct. 9 on a capital budget resolution appropriating a total of $41,580 to pay for the complete restoration and extensive cleaning of the artificial turf, which over the past eight to nine years has been reduced to a hard and potentially hazardous playing surface. The village will be reimbursed half the total cost through a Bergen County Open Space matching grant.

Council members initially questioned the project’s high price tag, as previous maintenance at Maple Park did not approach the total of the proposed work. According to Tim Cronin, head of Ridgewood’s Parks and Recreation Department, this restoration project is a different task.

  1. Hopefully a solution to maintain the usefulness of this field can be found. Perhaps, a small assessment to users of the “competition” field might be worked out.
