Sunshine Ballpark is getting a playground

photo (50)

On Wednesday, workers were finishing the concrete slab that will be the site of benches and a picnic table when a new playground is installed.

Sunshine Ballpark is getting a playground, thanks to the Mary Washington Hospital Foundation and efforts of The Fredericksburg Rotary Club.

William Lynch Jr., president of the Sunshine Ballpark Foundation, spoke with me today about the new plans for the sports complex located along Wicklow Drive.

The playground is expected to be finished in four months, Lynch said. It is the first significant change to the complex that opened in 2012.

I’ll have more details online soon.
