Poly Prep Country Day School Athletic Field

Brooklyn, NY

Poly Prep is a 160-year old private school with distinguished alumni including successful professional athletes, such as Joakim Noah, Brian Flores, and Rich Kotite.

MHA planned the 11 acre site for two NCAA regulation athletic fields and designed them to accommodate Poly Prep’s track and field, football, soccer, lacrosse and baseball/softball programs.

The athletic facility includes both artificial turf and natural grass, and an 8 lane 400 meter Olympic-grade Mondo track with long jump, high jump and pole vault.  New bleacher seating and a multi-function score board were also included.  The design incorporated a two-phase approach to facilitate continued use by Poly Prep’s on-going programs during construction.
