Softball fields at Franklin Park see renovations | Families
Softball players rejoice! The fields at the Franklin Park Softball Complex are being renovated for the first time in 20 years.
Park staff has been paying attention to other aspects of the complex over the past couple of years, but now it's time to work on the fields themselves. Field five was completed first as it was deemed to be in the worst shape. Two tons of ball infield mix and conditioners were tilled in and the playing surface has been crowned and leveled.
The field lights and repairs to the irrigation and turf had been done previously. The complex buildings were painted and the repairs to the restrooms have been made. Park staff will now move on to improving the other fields at Franklin Park. Eventually the fields at the Dwight Merkel Complex will also see renovations.
