On Thursday, July 25, state Senator Andy Hill presented a symbolic check for $750,000 to local little leaguers for improvements to the Northshore Athletic Fields.
Accepting the check was Helen Jackson, president of the Woodinville Little League, assisted by King County Parks Director Kevin Brown and King County Councilmember Jane Hague.
The funding is a grant from the Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office and will cover needed improvements at the fields, including restroom facilities, equipment storage, handicapped access, batting cages, a concessions stand and field improvements. The ball fields are managed under a public/private partnership with King County Parks.
The improvements will start immediately and are expected to be completed in the next two years.
