This is SO AMAZING for the children of Fontana!!!
The Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation (LADF) announced plans to partner with the Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation and the City of Fontana Community Services Department on construction of an all-new universally accessible Dodgers Dreamfield.
The groundbreaking ceremony is set to take place at Jack Bulik Park in Fontana on World Autism Awareness Day, Tuesday, April 2. This field will be LADF’s second universally accessible field designed for youth with special needs and physical disabilities.
Its 51st overall Dodgers Dreamfield is expected to be completed in June. Construction for the $600,000 project is also partially funded by Easterseals Southern California, LA84 Foundation, San Manuel Band of Mission Indians and Security Benefit.
There are 30,000 children living in the neighborhood surrounding Jack Bulik Park, and 3,000 with special needs. This field is designed to accommodate the youth participating in local leagues like the Little League Challengers Division.
Congrats to the city!! I can't wait to see what this looks like when all finished!!
