Maryland Recreation & Parks Association to renovate Salisbury Salvation Army ball field

One-day project set for Wednesday, June 13

The Maryland Recreation & Parks Association (MRPA), in partnership with Montgomery County Parks, will host a one-day, top-to-bottom field renovation at the Salvation Army in Salisbury on Wednesday, June 13.

The field will receive a thorough renovation, including a new dirt infield, new sod outfield, irrigation and fences. These improvements will increase playability and safety for ball players.

The project will be led by Montgomery County Parks, and approximately 14 volunteers from MRPA will assist with the renovation. The project gives MRPA members the opportunity to receive hands-on training while supporting one of the MRPA’s three pillars, social equity: ensuring all people have access to the benefits of local parks and recreation.

Volunteers from The Salvation Army will also assist with the renovation.

Materials and/or time for the renovation have been donated from numerous businesses and organizations including Best Fence, BSN Sports, Collins Wharf Sod, Davis, Bowen & Friedel, Inc., Luck Ecosystems, Mid-Atlantic Turf, Inc., MRPA, Montgomery Parks, Newsom, Peninsula Irrigation, Queen Anne’s County Parks, The Salvation Army, SiteOne Landscape Supply and Wicomico County Recreation & Parks.

The renovation will start on Wednesday at 7 a.m. and run all day. The field address is 407 Oak Street, Salisbury, MD 21804. Media is encouraged to cover this effort to enhance the recreational opportunities for area youth.

That is good no media please. The local schools so bad kids can not read, let them play ball. Run run.

Actually, if we had a hoop or basket ball net on every corner it would help our crime problem. That way they could play ball in the streets , instead of using the street as a sidewalk.

Oh great, more of my tax dollars going to nontaxpayers!

Must be nice to be entitled.

This is in the City limits of Salisbury, why can't their Parks and Recs department handle this instead of bringing employees from Montgomery County to do their dirty work.

The Salvation Army wouldn't need this renovation if they took care of what they had. They don't even use these fields any longer. What a waste of money.
