About the Larry Fink Baseball Field Renovation Project

These renovations are part of a larger vision to create a proactive funding model that connects community members to outdoor activities and nature for the long term through beautification and essential services. Your donations help ensure our world-class fields provide Highland Park and the surrounding communities with quality outdoor activities for years to come.

The estimated cost of the project is $1 million. Our goal is to raise $500,000 to fund 50% of the renovation. The Park District of Highland Park will fund the remaining 50%. Currently, we have raised $491,000 from private donations.

Construction is underway, and the new field is set to open in Summer 2024.
