County, WECMRD to celebrate Freedom Park improvements

Contact: Ron Siebert, Facilities Project Manager, 970-328-8881, ron.siebert@eaglecounty.us or Mike Staten, Edwards Area Manager, WECMRD, 970-777-8888, mstaten@wecmrd.org 

Oct. 3, 2017 – Eagle County and the Western Eagle County Metropolitan Recreation District (WECMRD) will host a ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday to celebrate the completion of major improvement projects at Freedom Park in Edwards. 

The ceremony is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. Oct. 5 on the west side of the athletic fields. All interested community members are invited to attend.

Improvements include a new turf field with a paved in place shock pad to reduce the force of impact when falls occur, as well as permanent field markings for soccer and men’s and women’s lacrosse.  Cost of the replacement was $678,500 and was paid for from the county’s Capital Improvement Fund.

Additionally, WECMRD replaced dirt infields with turf, a safer playing surface that extends playable seasons. The project utilized environmentally friendly manufacturing, and has the additional benefits of water conservation and an overall reduction in maintenance costs and supplies. The total cost of the WECMRD portion of the project was $422,000.
