Kimbell Playfields Grand Opening

Sunday, September 19, 2010

On Sunday, September 19, from noon to 3 p.m., Rec and Park, the City Fields Foundation and a number of our community partners will officially open the newly renovated play fields at Kimbell Playground.

Throughout the summer, athletes from the Western Addition have been enjoying the new synthetic fields and the consensus is that everyone absolutely loves the multi-sport fields. The synthetic turf offers a soft, level playing field and helps reduce injuries due to potholes.

The City Fields Foundation has been a tremendous partner that has helped revitalize a number of worn out grass sports fields around the city and has transformed them into some of the most sought-after sports venues in the city.

In all, City Fields will have donated almost $25M toward increasing sports opportunities for children.
