Quantum Field officially opened last weekend, and players will soon get the chance to enjoy this lighted, state-of-the-art synthetic turf rectangular field. Quantum Field and the adjacent parking lot were the result of a proffer agreement between the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, the Park Authority and The Meridian Group. Meridian designed and constructed the athletic field on a surface parking lot owned by Element Critical. The Fairfax Water Authority was a key player, assisting in the accommodation of nearby water mains. The field accommodates five sports on a 180’ by 360’ surface. The project also includes black vinyl perimeter chain link fencing, concrete walkways, bleacher pads, athletic field and parking lot lighting, sound containing walls and landscaping.
