The athletic field at Garfield Square has reopened with a new look. Fencing and drainage have been updated, the field’s old turf was completely recycled, and the new turf has a natural infill made from sand and cork, according to the SF Recreation and Parks Department.

Garfield Square underwent a previous renovation more than a decade ago through the City Fields Foundation, according to the department. The foundation renovated 21 athletic fields around the city, yielding 90,000 annual hours of playtime on city fields.

Here are some photos of the upgraded field:
