The City is looking at ways to keep the temperature on the new Masich Place Stadium synthetic turf down.

Last week during PG’s record-breaking heatwave, the fake grass reached temperatures of 70 degrees celsius.

“Studies have been done on where the cutoff point is and that’s why it was chosen to be 50. You can cool this down with water, but it doesn’t stay cool.”

The City is looking at bringing in a Fan Mister to help reduce temperatures on extremely hot days.
