The ODNR grant-funded improvements at the 327 Ballfields are moving forward. To continue the progress, we request all ball practices be held at Cecil Arthur Field and Blamer Field until further notice.
This is to allow construction crews to use heavy equipment in the parks without worries of citizens being in these areas.
Previously scheduled baseball and softball tournaments will take place at the 327 Complex as scheduled.
We also ask the public to be mindful when visiting the park to fish. Please do not drive or park vehicles in any area under construction. Thank you for your understanding.
