First Phase Improvements to Pioneer Park Complete
The first phase of improvements to the city owned Pioneer Park Baseball Complex are complete. City officials say among the improvements are a synthetic turf infield, which they say should result in decreased watering, less maintenance, extended playability and increased player safety for a cost of $294, 050. Other upgrades on the complex include better lighting, safer outfield fencing, and new bleachers which are compliant with the federal Americans with Disabilities Act. Cheyenne Mayor Rick Kaysen says the upgrades will benefit the entire community in terms of attracting baseball and softball tournaments and improving the general quality of life, which he says is important in attracting new businesses to Cheyenne.
