Volunteers include sports field managers, lawn care professionals, landscape contractors, groundskeepers and neighborhood youth, who assisted with the transformation that had an estimated value in excess of $50,000.
“Neighborhoods deserve a healthy park or community green space that they can call their own,” says Cindy Code, executive director of Project EverGreen. “Thriving parks create a community hub for neighbors – young and old – to connect.”
STMA supported the renovation project by having more than 100 professional sports turf managers on site.
“We were thrilled to be a part of this important project and bring a well-managed and playable ballpark to a deserving community,” says Kim Heck, CAE, CEO of STMA. “To use our professional expertise and know-how and bring a plan like this to life is a win-win for everyone.”
