City of Windsor Asks for Feedback on Proposed Baseball Diamond for Realtor Park
The City of Windsor is looking to add to the local baseball diamond roster by converting one of two seldom-used football fields at Realtor Park into a baseball diamond, and they want your input!
Realtor Park is a 23-acre site located at 1390 Homedale Boulevard in Riverside. The park is currently home to a playground, splash pad, washroom facilities, two tennis/pickle ball courts, three baseball diamonds, two football fields and some bleachers.
Staff have reimagined the park to convert the football field closest to the parking lot and play area into a baseball diamond while maintaining a football/soccer field on the south end. This change would better utilize the space for area athletes and families once COVID-19 restrictions are eased and construction is complete, as the demand for football facilities has dwindled.
Windsor City Council has earmarked $135,000 in the capital budget for the project, once feedback from public consultation can be factored in, and the new baseball diamond could be ready for the spring of 2022.
Traditionally, a public information centre would be held to discuss the project in person. However, due to COVID-19 restrictions, it was deemed more appropriate to provide a webpage for public review and feedback instead.
Please visit the Realtor Park Baseball Diamond page at CityWindsor.ca for more information, and email [email protected] or phone 519-253-2300 prior to Tuesday May 21, 2021. All feedback received will help the city make the most of this new opportunity for growth in Riverside.
