Revival of Centennial Park, Ball Diamond, New Denver, BC

The current ball diamond at Centennial Park hasn't been maintained or updated for the past 15 years or more. In an effort to start using the field again we would like to apply for funding from Slocan Lake Rec Commission 6 to give the infield a minor facelift to make this field, usable and enjoyable for all.

Currently this field has a pitchers mound used in Fastball, generally the leagues in the surrounding areas such as Kaslo, Nakusp & Nelson play SloPItch with no pitchers mound. Ideally we would like to remove the mound, level the infield and laying appropriate soil, with the possibility of installing anchors for bases and upgrading equipment if extra funding available. With leveling and proper yearly maintenance this would ultimately reduce injury from holes and unpredictable ball bounce or twisted ankles.

There are a number of community members including myself who have joined the Nakusp sloPitch league. This will be the first year in a long time that New Denver has had its own league team. To be able to use the ball field regularly for practice and potentially community games would allow for youth and community members to once again enjoy the use of the ball field and add to the vitality of Centennial Park.

To conclude we are seeking support from the community and the Village of New Denver in order to access some funding for this cause. Please sign this petition in support of this.
