John Keates, Mason County Parks & Recreation Manager, led a Dedication Ceremony at the Mason County Recreation Area (MCRA) to officially open the renovated ball parks and accept an $8,000 sponsorship check from Fred Meyer Representative Charlene Emerson.  The donation was made specifically to assist in the funding the operation and maintenance of the park. The park features two new ball fields with new synthetic turf infields, making the ball parks more usable in with the wetter weather here in the Pacific Northwest.  The funding of the renovation came through a State Washington Wildlife and Recreation Coalition (WWRC) Grant Program.
