At Tanglewood, 700,000 feet tread their lawn each year
Tanglewood draws more than 350,000 visitors annually. That’s more than 700,000 feet trampling the lawn every year. Patrons picnic on the grass, tourists stroll through the grounds, children play ball behind the visitors’ center. Any ordinary grass wouldn’t hold up. Facilities manager Bobby Lahart, grounds supervisor Bruce Peeples, and the Tanglewood crew work behind the scenes to prepare for the busy summer concert season.
