Recreation Park is the jewel of the City of Chehalis. It’s a beautiful entrance to our community and we are excited to have a plan for renovating the entire park, including replacing Penny Playground and resurfacing the four ball fields.
We have also begun the renovation of the ballfield complex. For starters, the drainage system for the fields will be completely overhauled. That will be followed by the installation of all-weather surfaces on all four fields.
We think that our highly successful high school softball program deserves a first-class facility on which to practice and play.
In addition, Chehalis has lost out on scheduling youth softball and baseball tournaments in the spring and early summer because the fields have not been playable.
Upgrading the four ballfields will allow tournaments to return to Chehalis, resulting in an increase in tourism revenue to our community of nearly $1,000,000 per year.
