We’ve been spending our nights and weekends at Westfield, Indiana’s new home for youth sports for a few months now, but Grand Park officially celebrated their grand opening this weekend. There was live music, a ferris wheel, games and activities for kids, and (of course) youth sports all day long.
We started our day with our son’s baseball tournament, and the hubby and I went back again that night for a fun evening in the new heart of Westfield. The baseball diamonds are beautifully lit at night. The turf soccer/football/lacrosse fields are gorgeous. And, the dream of a premier destination for youth sports is officially a reality.
Here are a few photos from our weekend at Grand Park. This is where you will find me every Saturday in the spring. Also? Sometimes Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. This week there is potential for all of the above as we finish out the last double elimination tournament, but at least we’re shaded well in the bleachers.
Normally, the concession stands are filled with typical stadium fair like popcorn, nachos, and soda. For the grand opening celebration, Lot C was filled with fair foods. Including lemon shakeups, naturally.
There are 26 diamonds on the east side of the park for softball and baseball. Local recreational leagues as well as travel teams from all over the midwest have already been enjoying the facilities for the spring season.
