Commissioners today accepted a $30,691 donation from the Brookwood Athletic Association to go toward improvements to the seven youth baseball/softball fields at Bethesda Park in Lawrenceville.
The Brookwood Athletic Association runs youth baseball and softball programs at Bethesda Park. The donation will help fund drainage and infield-surface improvements, new bases and home plates, and other much-needed repairs. The contractor, Championship Field Construction, is expected to complete the project in time for the spring season.
The 159-acre Bethesda Park, at 225 Bethesda Church Road, also features three adult sports fields, a football/multi-purpose field with lighted walking track, six soccer fields, a senior recreation center, indoor shuffleboard court, indoor aquatic center with leisure play pool and instructional pools, playgrounds, pavilions, outdoor basketball courts and horseshoe pit, and 1.5 miles of paved multipurpose trails.
