The construction of the two Little League fields is part of an approximately $1 million overhaul of the 4-acre community park that includes the construction of two new playgrounds, new pathways and benches, a fitness trail, and additional parking.
Located at Jerusalem and Washington Avenues, Washington Avenue Park has been a county property since World War II, when it was acquired for drainage purposes.
Among those in attendance was Kurt Schmitt, president of the Seaford Chamber of Commerce, and Marty Lyons, the former University of Alabama and New York Jet football great, who is also senior vice president of operations for the Chamber.
