Kick Off Event

Leo Mullen Sports Park

Players from the Encinitas Soccer League, right, prepare for a demonstration at the Sept. 16 ceremony, which introduced the Leo Mullen Sports Park’s new artificial turf field to the public.

Originally built in 1997, the park revamped its field after receiving approval from the Encinitas City Council in January. The turf field — completed by Byrom-Davey Constriction and Fieldturf — is designed to conserve water and improve playing conditions.
