The three teams—men’s and women’s lacrosse and field hockey—shared an all-weather field at the Class of 1952 Stadium for 15 years. At the time, it was determined that the type of artificial turf used in the stadium was no longer considered the ideal playing surface for lacrosse. The turf at the stadium was replaced with a different type of synthetic grass that is the new standard. To create a new home for Princeton Field Hockey, Bedford Field (adjacent to Class of 1952 Stadium) was converted to an all-weather playing surface. The new field hockey field, with drainage improvements and utilizing artificial turf, was completed as Phase 1 in 2012. A grandstrand, field lighting, press box modifications, and accessory buildings were constructed as Phase 2 in 2013.
