Crater Park Concession Restroom Building Dedicated

A belated formal dedication ceremony was held for the concessions and restroom building at Darnell Wright Sports Complex on Thursday, June 17 on Field #3.

The dedication plaque was unveiled, permanently affixed to the outside wall of the building. Director Mike Ragsdale and Parks Supervisor Jim McMaster spoke briefly. A BBQ was served to our generous volunteers.

This facility was constructed largely by volunteers who donated their time, labor and professional expertise. The cost for the building was approximately $74,291 for materials, permits, and engineering. To build this building today without donations would likely exceed $200,000.

The building opened for business in September, 2009. Until that time, a trailer and portable restrooms served during the games.
