The fields at William Bradley Park will undergo a much needed face lift from Project EverGreen and its partners.

Built on a landfill in the 1960s the park’s playing surfaces are uneven due to settling of organic matter and are unsafe in some spots for teams to play.

A pre-project assessment of the conditions at William Bradley Park was completed to determine the scope of the renovation.
