With a funding contribution from council and the input and participation of a dedicated group of community members, significant improvements to ‘Ball Diamond 7’ (located adjacent to the Innisfail Arena) will now be undertaken and completed.
Council on Monday, April 12, awarded a contract to a local excavating company to commence a number of significant upgrades that will leave the diamond in a much more playable state — and as a result enhance its ability to host larger-scale ball tournaments and events going forward.
The project is being jointly undertaken by the Town and the Community Facility Enhancement Association (CFEA). The Town will cover the costs associated with construction of the site’s basic amenities (grading, grass, shale, fencing, etc.), while the CFEA over time will contribute to the development and installation of a number of enhanced features (such as irrigation, bleachers, concrete dugout with storage, scoreboard, lighting, etc.).
