An agreement allowing the Kanawha County Commission to use an installment plan to buy $2.5 million worth of artificial turf for the Shawnee Park Multi-Sport Complex also makes it possible to build a $500,000 concessions stand/press box building and stay within the project’s budget.

The new turf, purchased from Field Turf Co., through four payments of $625,000 each, will be used to surface the complex’s six soccer fields and four baseball/softball infields. Nearly one million square feet of artificial turf was bought through the arrangement, approved during a County Commission meeting on Thursday.
