The three-phase project is at McElroy Park.
JAMESTOWN — Unison Bank announced that it has committed $300,000 to the Jamestown Parks and Recreation Foundation to help fund the renovation of the playing fields at McElroy Park.
“Jamestown Parks and Recreation has done a great job in developing key recreational areas for our community,” said Kelly Rachel, Unison Bank president and CEO. “At Unison Bank, we are proud of our community bank heritage and want to help our communities grow.”
The McElroy Park field renovations will consist of three phases that will provide renovations to the youth complex and Jack Brown Stadium. The initial phase has construction planned for the Fall of 2023 which will include a youth tee ball field, one Babe Ruth field, two Cal Ripken fields (one with a turf infield), as well as a restroom and concession building.
“Jamestown Parks and Recreation is grateful to organizations like Unison Bank that prioritize supporting needs in the communities they operate in," said Amy Walters, executive director, Jamestown Parks and Recreation District. "This gift will make a difference for our community.”
McElroy Park is home to youth baseball, fast-pitch softball, high school and college baseball and softball programs. The park is home to amateur leagues as well.
The project is a partnership between Jamestown Parks and Recreation, Jamestown Area Youth Baseball Association, Outlaw Fastpitch Softball, Blue Jays and University of Jamestown.
“Unison Bank has been and continues to be a generous leader in our community,” said Matt Perkins, president, Jamestown Area Youth Baseball Association. “We are extremely grateful for their support on this project.”
