Nicholson Stadium is vital to the Methuen Community. Residents and Families spend weekdays and weekdays socializing, enjoying sporting, musical and recreational events. We watch our children grow and develop and come together as a community at the Stadium. Portions of the surrounding area of Nicholson Stadium are in need of capital improvements. These areas are the wooden, deteriorating visitor bleachers; a male only clubhouse that is too small for our teams, our athletes change in storage pods on the stadium grounds. The bathrooms are insufficient for events and games. Surrounding the Stadium, is old barbed wire fencing minus the barb wire. Our children play, practice and march on compacted, barren grass fields that dry out in the heat or become “mud bowls” in the rain which limits the amount of use. Renovations are needed to build a new Clubhouse that will house both male and female locker rooms and adequate bathrooms. The existing Clubhouse needs to be renovated to be used by coaches or for storage. The fields need to be replaced with artificial Turf, which will allow for more practice, playing and marching time. New handicap accessible visitor bleachers and new fencing with movable gates to allow for marching band equipment needs to be installed to enclose the renovated complex.
