Mill Creek Athletic Association and other community members officially opened the 144,000 square foot multi-purpose artificial turf field at Duncan Creek Park on Saturday, August 14 during their 2010 Football Jamboree. The field was dedicated to District 4 Commissioner, Kevin Kenerly, by Mill Creek Athletic Association, for his true dedication, service and volunteerism to the community and his commitment and mentorship to Gwinnett County’s Youth and the Mill Creek Athletic Association from 1995 – 2010.
This field is the very first artificial turf field installed in a Gwinnett County Park. It is striped for football, soccer and lacrosse, and composed of two inch tall polyethylene fibers filled with 468,000 pounds of rubber (recycled tires). The extensive drainage system of this field is designed to absorb a rainfall intensity of nearly 30 inches an hour. The surface can be cooled in warm weather with a twelve zone irrigation system. The project was completed under budget in 100 days which was earlier than anticipated. Construction of this project was funded by the 2005 Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (or SPLOST).
