Harkness Track and Field
Harkness is well used and is soon to run its life expectancy. The artificial playing surface in generally in good condition and kept that way through weekly inspection to repair deteriorating carpet seams and adhesive. It will need to be resurfaced in the next couple of years along with repairing the black vinyl fencing and fence posts that border the field.
For scheduling use of this field see the Athletic Department web site.
