GHS Cardinal Field Improvement Project
The goal of the Cardinal Field Improvement project is to meet our students’ athletic needs and provide the general public with a facility that offers a more accessible and inviting facility.The District completed a Cardinal Field Feasibility Study during the FY18 academic year which culminated with the committee concurrence to pursue Option B, a $20M project. This option included replacing the bleachers, improving field lighting and the speaker system, adding a through road, relocating the tennis courts and adding a building serving as the ticket gate and facilities complete with ADA accessible bathrooms, team rooms and concession. The board approved the continuation of the design phase on Option B on 2/22/18.
The design phase began immediately and began with the formation of a Steering Committee. The committee will be conducting additional studies, preparing a site plan, applying for a municipal improvement and coordinating additional design work. We are seeking community feedback on the design phase, if you would like to provide input, please click on the Project Feedback button below.
On May 22, 2018, District administration and KG+D Architects presented a status update on GHS Cardinal Field. Community feedback was collected and is encouraged throughout the development of the site plan.

As part of the 2017-2018 Town approved Capital Plan, Greenwich Public Schools (GPS) administration has contracted with KG+D architects to conduct a Cardinal Field Feasibility Study (CFFS). The purpose of the Feasibility Study was to review possible approaches to repairing and/or improving Cardinal Field and the grounds and facilities surrounding the field. The study resulted in a single plan, Option B, but a variety of options for the GPS administration and the Board of Education were considered. The scope of the feasibility project focused on health and safety priorities as well as possible upgrades of the field area to better serve the needs of the community.
Feedback was obtained and used to refine and prioritize possible approaches in repairing and/or improving the Cardinal Field facility.
