Elizabethtown Sports Park - Opening Day

Opening Day at the Elizabethtown Sports Park took place yesterday.  My wife and I made the trip to ETown to take in the festivities and see the finished product. Here are a few photos:

A big congratulations to James Bergdoll, Sports Turf Manager, on the successful completion of this daunting project.  After 2 years of work, the place is one of its kind in the country.

Go to James' blog to see the project from the early stages to completion.
