Town of Littleton, Alumni and Jet Fields

Design of Complete Field Renovation
Littleton, MA


Alumni Field at Littleton Middle School and Russell Street Elementary School is the primary game field for most High School sporting events.  Jet Field is the junior varsity softball field.


The Problem

  • Playing surface was significantly deteriorated and was unmaintainable to provide a safe standard of play for athletes
  • The ancillary facilities such as the grandstands and press box were at the end of their useful life and did not meet current life safety codes
  • The paved parking facilities were failing and the site did not provide ADA accessibility for athletes, coaches or spectators

  • Project also includes a new 1,200 sf amenities building with concessions, restrooms, apparel sales and equipment storage
