Please join us for the ribbon cutting of the Mission Park Ability Ballfield on Thursday, June 15, from 6:00 to 7:00 PM.
The project is sponsored by the City of Spokane Parks and Recreation Department, who received grants from the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation and the Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office’s Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program (WWRP), as well as donations from many other generous donors.
The Ability Field is designed to be a literal game changer for the physically-challenged athlete and will be the first fully adaptive ball field in the Spokane area. The project includes a new ball field with a low-maintenance synthetic surface and outfield fence, accessible pathways, expanded parking, and site lighting. The Ability Field program will allow children and adults alike to share in a cohesive recreational and educational experience with the support of peer-level volunteers and a playing field suited to their needs.
Thanks to generous contributions from the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation, the Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office and many private donors, the Mission Park Ability Field will be a great leap forward in bridging the gap between athletes with disabilities and the world around them.
