Quandaries and Queries

I am looking at buying a property that includes 12 Acres of land and I am trying to visualize what this size is equivalent to. I have searched your site and figured out how many square feet it is but I was hoping that you could apply 12 Acres to something tangible, like a football field!

Thank you in advance

Hi Heather,

One acres is 43,560 square feet. An American football field is 100 yards by 50 yards, which is 300 feet by 150 feet. Thus a football field is 300  150 = 45,000 square feet. Hence a football field is quite close to an acre in size. This is the part of the field between the sidelines and the goal lines, and does not include the end zones or track around the field. The property you are considering buying is about the size of 12 football fields.
