Dog Park, Wiffle Ball, And Ice Rink On The Way To Broome County Parks In 2023
Recently, Broome County Executive, Jason Garnar shared his 2023 County Budget Address and their initiatives. It was the first in-person address in the last three years and it included many never-before seen features with their Parks system.
Garnar announced plans for the biggest parks improvement project in Broome County's history. This includes a totally remodeled building at Grippen Park that will have space for soccer, basketball, craft fairs and concerts, just to name a few.
Garnar also announced the return of ice at Grippen Park with the installation of an outdoor rink so that we all can skate outdoors in nature. They are also going to bring a state-of-the-art wiffle ball stadium to Broome County.
Wiffle Ball On The Way
Wiffle ball has gained popularity for the last several years and the stadium will be available for new leagues. They plan to renovate the BAGSAI softball complex. The complex will become a regional softball destination with turf fields, lights and amenities.
Garnar also announced a playground for our four-legged friends with the construction of a new dog park at Otsiningo North. Small changes will also be made with new picnic tables, grills and water fountains.
We can also see improvements with water fountains, new shelters, pathways and bathrooms. Pretty much every amenity that Broome County parks have to offer will be updated or replaced.
