Park River Parks District, Park River Baseball Boosters, Park River Figure Skaters, Park River Hockey, and Park River Limelites added their in- put to what the needs of each program and the needs of the community would be and after 15 conceptual layouts and seven locations were dis- cussed, a plan was selected and presented to the city. Now, they are moving into the fundraising phase to deter- mine what can be done this year and the following year. The 40-acre space south of North Star Coop off of High- way 17 has been designed with the goal of adding three Cal Ripkin baseball fields and an event center, which would fea- ture an ice arena and gymna- sium.

According to Loren Zavalney of the Base- ball Boosters, the city's sum- mer youth leagues from T-Ball through Legion Baseball, in- cluding girls' softball has 155 participants. Those numbers do not include the women's softball teams who also use the fields. He said that scheduling field time across only three fields has become a challenge. The addition of the three proposed diamonds and future plans for a fourth larger dia- mond, would allow for more evening practices and parent involvement rather than hav- ing many of the practices at times when many parents are at work. An additional benefit to the program, he said, would be the option to host tourna- ments and bring people into town. Hockey board member Jon Markusen said that talk sur- rounding a new ice arena has been ongoing for the past 30 Complex What is a rubber duck for? #,ee p,ag,,e, _ Summerfest gets messy Se',e 1p,a,,e y '"][tf you diola't: ]Laaow ]hdistolry, ldh, ela you d[o,n' ]know ,auntydhtiba, h"O>lU[ ,aBoe at l[c,ad[: ll:]htatll: d(oxe, s]n['ll: kn, o,v,, ii.t [i ]p,aunt ,o,lf a une_.,.
