Why did we lose the youth ballfields?

The youth ballfields on the west side of Hansen Park were often wet and were our lowest quality fields. The City Council, PREC, and staff approved relocating these youth fields to the east side of Hansen Park to the current adult fields at this location. These fields have fences and will be reconstructed/regraded to meet youth needs. The two adult fields had undulating outfields (ankle breakers) and were often wet. These two existing adult fields will be reprogrammed to the newly constructed lighted ballfield at New Brighton's Lion's Park.
