Grants from Target Field tax will upgrade two city fields


The soccer field at Lyndale Farmstead Park will soon get artificial turf as part of a grant program that is funded by a sales tax also used to build Target Field.  

The soccer field is run down because of heavy use, according to a Park Board memo.  Hennepin County and the Minnesota Amateur Sports Commission awarded the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board $80,000 to install artificial turf. The Park Board will have to match the grant with $80,000 of its own funds.
