McMurray is the premier municipal athletic space in St. Paul. It hosts hundreds of thousands of players each year and provides an important recreation purpose within the City of Saint Paul. Heavy and consistent uses have resulted in the need for renovations and replacement of the existing assets that have reached their useful life.

The artificial turf fields at McMurray Park were installed in 2006 are due to be replaced for reasons that include: age, safety, accessibility, and overall condition as a result of 14 years of heavy use. This project will take place in two phases. The first phase will include the removal and replacement of the artificial turf athletic fields, updated site furnishings, and sports goals. The second phase will improve site circulation and accessibility. Total construction budget for the McMurray Park Project is $1,400,000.00.
