Richards Memorial Park Athletic Fields Master Plan

Richards Memorial Park Athletic Fields Master Plan

Granville Little League, Granville, New York

Richards Memorial Park is a heavily use community park in Granville, NY along the Mettawee River. The park hosts the Granville Little League which had experienced substantial growth in participation over the years. Park facilities had begun to show wear and tear. Play ground structures were falling into disrepair and ball fields had become worn out and poorly drained. The quality and availability of recreational facilities no longer met resident’s expectations or the field availability for Little League practices and games.

Saratoga Associates developed an athletic field master plan for the 22-acre park. The master plan expanded the park to include ten little league baseball fields, indoor batting cage and bullpens, concession area, observation decks, picnic area, basketball courts, skate board court, playground, parking, pedestrian circulation, and vehicular circulation. Fund raising provided for construction costs.

The durable and attractive facilities are highly popular and now adequately meet the field play demands of the community.
