October 2012 - The football field is receiving a make-over: turf repair and regrading it to have a 1% slope from the centerline(North to South) down the field draining both East and West.  The field will be closed for two years while giving the new grass a chance to establish itself. Madison Parks hopes to have this project finished by the winter of 2012 - but will need the weather to cooperate in order to do so.
