City Restores the LCHS Varsity Baseball Field

During its 2022 annual Winter Field Closure, the city of La Cañada Flintridge restored the La Cañada High School varsity baseball field.
The field required repair after the field waterline main was damaged when the district contractor was building the district pool in late August 2022.
Following the reconstruction of the field’s main water line and irrigation system by the district’s contractor, the city proactively began its restoration plan on Dec.16, 2022, to ensure the field was playable for the community by January 2023.
The plan included, but was not limited to:
• Aeration
• Irrigation
• Reseeding of the entire field
• Fertilizer application
• Topper application
• Mowing
• Edging
• Dragging
LCF’s efforts were spearheaded by Deputy Director of Administrative Services Arabo Parseghian and Facilities and Maintenance Superintendent Ken Roberts. Parseghian acted as project manager and coordinated between various groups throughout the project, including the Sheriff’s Department to enhance enforcement of the field closures. Roberts assisted by working directly with Oakridge Landscaping and its crew throughout the duration of the project.
“The restoration of the fields at La Cañada High School required dedication from city and Oakridge Landscaping staff, who handled the project with efficiency,” said Mayor Keith Eich. “Residents, athletic groups and visitors of LCF frequently use these fields, so it was important that we were quick in our response and action in planning and completing the project. On behalf of the city, I’d like to thank our residents, athletic groups and visitors for their cooperation during the project.”
The city is now currently working on the restoration of the junior varsity field. To learn more about the restoration projects, visit the city of La Cañada Flintridge website.
