Today, Mayor Rilling and members of our City of Norwalk/Recreation & Parks Department, Common Council, Norwalk Public Schools and Brien McMahon Softball team participated in the ribbon cutting of the new Brien McMahon Softball Field.
The field has been converted from a natural grass field to a state-of-the-art Astroturf field. It is designed to keep the turf significantly cooler during hot weather while providing cushioning to absorb impact and traction for the players. Each base in the field is also removable so that the field can also be used for field hockey, soccer, lacrosse, etc.
Upgrades also include a brand-new scoreboard, new MUSCO lights that have been installed, fencing, safety netting, a batting cage and pitching warmup areas. The field will also include brand new bleachers that are five rows deep and ADA accessible. Thank you to everyone who made this project possible.
