Samohi Athletic Field

Project Information

Through a partnership between the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District and the City of Santa Monica, the Samohi athletic field has been replaced. In place of the old turf field, is a new synthetic turf athletic field. Construction was completed in October 2011.

Sharing a strong commitment to meet the community’s recreational needs and pursuant to the Santa Monica High School Master Facilities Use Agreement, the City and the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District have partnered to make the synthetic turf football/soccer field and other recreational facilities at Santa Monica High School (SAMOHI) available for City programs and community use during specified non-school hours.

The new synthetic turf field is available only by permit as are the Drake Pool and Natatorium, dance studio, wrestling room, and south gymnasium. The track, outdoor basketball courts and tennis courts will be available for both drop-in and permitted use.
