Planned for re-opening, the multi-use sports field will offer a variety of team sports and activities. In addition, the complex also houses a community center that is available for private functions. What many don’t know is that the area surrounding the complex is ideal for bird-watching. This complex of ball fields yields more birds than you might think, due in large part to the adjacent lake and nature trail. To the east on the lake you will find wintering ducks like the Ring-necked and Lesser Scaup. If you follow the trail east of the lake along the boardwalk through a small bayhead the discovery of large indigenous tress is delightful. Some large trees in this mature wetland hammock make for interesting flocks of migrant birds in both October and April.
