  3. Progress & Updates

Grand Ledge and the surrounding area has a shortage of regulation ball fields for kids. To better ensure all kids who want to play, can play, the City with support from Grand Ledge Youth Baseball, worked to develop a phased ball field park. Phase 1 is a youth baseball field with ADA viewing access and connecting trails into Fitzgerald Park to be developed on a 10-acre parcel of city-owned land. This project will be adjacent to Fitzgerald Park. Phase II will develop two additional fields with additional ADA features to ensure greater participation and viewing. The City currently has only one youth ball field at Fitzgerald Memorial Field downtown along the Grand River. This project will allow additional kids to participate, host more regulation tournaments, and provide ADA spectator viewing. 

Phase I of this project will include the development of:

  • 13U/14U & up baseball field
  • Minimum of three (3) paved handicapped parking spaces
  • ADA connecting sidewalks from the parking lot to the field
  • ADA barrier-free viewing areas
  • Wheelchair-accessible picnic tables
  • Barrier-free portable bathrooms
  • Bioretention stormwater treatment swale
  • Green privacy buffer along the southern and western boundary of the property
