The Sports Park | Playa Vista

Tennis anyone? | Playa Vista Living

The Playa Vista Sports Park is a seven-acre park features a Little League baseball field, soccer field, two half basketball courts, two tennis courts, and a universally-accessible playground.

Designed by the internationally-recognized landscape architectural firm EDAW, the Sports Park also includes picnic areas and the first segment of a two-mile-long trail that parallels the Riparian Corridor, with exercise stations and a variety of viewpoints.

The Playa Vista Sports Park is truly state-of-the-art. For example, the synthetic turf at the John H. Henschel Soccer Field is made from polyethylene to prevent burn wounds caused by sliding. The Little League baseball field features "Tifsport" Bermuda grass turf specially selected for its ability to withstand heavy use. Of the two half basketball courts, one features an adjustable backboard that can be lowered for young children.

Each component of the park has been carefully laid out with the local community and environment in mind:

  • The soccer field requires no irrigation, fertilizer, pesticides, herbicides or mowing-so it produces no green waste.
  • Due to the sophisticated subsurface drainage systems, rain water quickly drains away, allowing athletes to play ball year round.
  • The trail is constructed of decomposed granite, a material that helps reduce the amount of storm water runoff and lessens the impact on joints for joggers and walkers.
  • 50 percent of the plant material at the park is either native, drought-tolerant or low water to reduce irrigation
  • The lights illuminating the pathways feature highly efficient sharp cutoff optics to prevent light pollution into surrounding areas.
