At Honeygo Run Regional Park, the county will start the skinning process for Field 1 in early November. This is the field farthest from the community building. The turf and dirt from Field 1 will be used to repair the pitchers mound and infield grass at Field 2.
The main natural turf field which serves as the outfield for both diamonds is a priority for work in the immediate future, as is the diamond at Perry Hall Elementary School, which should be skinned by the spring of 2014.
Much of the work depends on the weather.
Councilman Marks worked with recreation council representatives to make these improvements a priority.
“I would like to thank County Executive [Kevin] Kamenetz’s staff for advancing these projects, which are so important to our large and growing recreation councils,” Marks said. “In addition to these improvements to our existing fields, Baltimore County will build three new parks in Perry Hall over the next year. No community has so many parks being built at once.”
Tim Bonner, a volunteer with the Perry Hall Recreation Council, worked with Councilman Marks to highlight the importance of the fields. “Councilman Marks got personally involved to improve these fields, and I would like to thank him for his support of our recreation program,” Bonner said.
