The City of Lacey Parks & Recreation Department invites the community to the Regional Athletic Complex (RAC) Field-Replacement Celebration on Thursday, March 21 from 5:30 p.m. – 6:15 p.m. at the RAC, 8345 Steilacoom Rd SE, Olympia.
This winter, the City replaced the infield turf on softball infields 1 and 2 due to wear and tear. The City plans to replace all 6 artificial turf fields at the RAC over the next few years. In 2018, the City added bleacher covers to fields 1 through 5. Since the RAC’s lighted, turfed fields are used every weekend of the year, the bleacher covers help protect spectators from the rainy northwest weather.
The RAC, opened in 2009 with 67 developed acres, is regarded as one of the finest outdoor sporting venues in the state. The park included 6 regulation soccer fields, 4 regulation softball fields, 1 minor-league-rated baseball field, 2 concession buildings, 4 large group picnic shelters, 2 playgrounds, 2 miles of walking and jogging paths, a kite-flying hill, 3 half-court basketball courts, and a 6-acre outdoor event and festival area.
