PAJARO The Pajaro Neighborhood Park reached a major milestone Tuesday as workers from Graniterock began laying down artificial turf for the park's soccer field.

More than 50 rolls of 15-by-256 artificial turf will be applied to the area, which will also be used as a baseball field.

The field consists of multiple layers, including gravel, plastic mesh, and PowerBase, a type of styrofoam panel manufactured by Brock International that is designed to absorb shock.

So far, a large gazebo area, bathrooms and a basketball court have been installed at the park, which is expected to open Dec. 10.

In addition, the 4.9-acre parcel at 24 San Juan Road will feature a bandstand, asphalt running/walking track, two separate play areas (one for 5- to 12-year-old children and another for 2- to 5-year-olds), a mural to be created by local school children, picnic areas and a parking lot. It will be open from dawn to dusk.
