The Northeastern football and soccer teams have a premier facility for their practices and home games: Parsons Field. As a result of comprehensive renovations completed in 1992, the field now enjoys the look of a major facility. Further improvements were made to Parsons in 2001, including the installation of a new AstroPlay artificial playing surface. This new surface dramatically improved the safety and versatility of Parsons Field. The well-groomed seven acres contain not only the multipurpose turf surface and grandstand, but also the adjacent Friedman Diamond, home of Husky baseball, with new dugouts and scoreboard. Through the years the field has hosted football, field hockey, soccer, women's lacrosse and track. The field is also enjoyed by Town of Brookline teams, including the high school's varsity football and baseball squads as well as various summer leagues.
