VFW Park reopens April 6

The City will host a reopening celebration at 6 p.m. on April 6 for VFW Park at 401 E. Second St.

The event will feature a presentation from Mayor Dale Ross, who also will throw out the first pitch in the reconstructed softball fields as well as unveil a “First Purple Heart City in Texas” sign and a plaque dedicated to Purple Heart Medal recipients.

Refreshments, including hot dogs and sodas, will be available.

The Georgetown Youth Girls Softball Association will play games at 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. following the ceremony.

Smith Contracting of Austin completed the park’s reconstruction, which included a complete rebuild of the three softball fields, concession stand and restrooms as well as parking improvements, field lighting, a batting cage, bleachers and a playground.

The $1.4 million project took about a year to complete and was designed by Austin-based Luck Design Team.
