• Welcome to the South Mercer Playfields construction home page! South Mercer Playfield Construction

    The updates to the South Mercer Playfields (SMP) is a joint project between the City and School District. When completed, nearly two-thirds of the SMP will be turfed and lit with new LED lighting. The MIHS Girls’ Softball Team will have a beautiful new purpose-built field, and the MI community will have first-class fields for individual and team use.  

    SMP will close to use and construction will start the week of July 11 with construction expected through the end of 2022. 

    The track and field will remain open, except for a short period of time when the lights are replaced later in the summer or in early fall.

    For your safety, we ask that you please respect all fencing and access signage.

    We have posted some drone video of the construction at SMP on our social media platforms.
