Pennington Field is a popular site to rent for football, soccer, lacrosse and field hockey. The football field is frequently rented to semi-pro and arena football organizations. Pennington Field parking lot is also a highly used events facility.
Pennington Field's playing surface was updated in June 2010, when a new Hellas Matrix turf was installed. The Hellas Matrix system is the same durable, high-quality system used at the Cowboys Stadium in Arlington.
