About the Larry Fink Baseball Field Renovation Project

These renovations are part of a larger vision to create a proactive funding model connecting 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 for the project is $1 million.  Our goal is to raise $500,000 dollars to fund 50% of the renovation. The remaining 50% will be funded by the Park District of Highland Park.  Currently, we have raised $360,000 from private donations.

The field is set for construction in Spring 2024 and to open in Summer 2024.
