Burien wants to upgrade Moshier Park with artificial turf
information from the City of Burien
The City of Burien is proposing a project to provide stormwater management for a drainage sub-basin around Moshier Park and make improvements to the athletic fields and restroom facilities at the park for year-round usage.
This 15.2-acre community park is located at 430 South 156th Street in central Burien adjacent to Highline High School in central Burien. The park shares parking with the Moshier Arts Center located on the southwest boundary.
The multiuse sports field site can accommodate 4 lighted grass 250-300- foot grass softball/baseball fields, 2 lighted grass 120-yard regulation soccer fields, an asphalt path, and restroom.
Additional grass field areas are used for practice by youth soccer and football.
The recreational 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 treatment will be provided for stormwater runoff from pollution-generating impervious and pervious surfaces within the project site prior to runoff entering the 18-inch City storm line. In the proposed conditions, the stormwater flow control and water quality facilities will treat both om-site Moshier Park property as well as off-site Highline School District property. The project construction activities will include grading, new storm sewers, new stormwater treatment facilities, paving, and landscaping. The existing bathroom structure will be demolished and replaced with a new restroom and concession building.
