A major, expensive facelift pays off: Avondale’s Festival Fields Park was named Outstanding Facility of the Year by the Arizona Parks and Recreation Association.
Festival Fields Park, which recently underwent a $19 million expansion and renovation, offers an array for amenities that offer both passive and active recreation, including a skate park and bicycle pump track combination, multi-use sports fields, Little League baseball fields, a splash pad, urban fishing lake, picnic ramadas, walking trails, and sports court areas for pickleball and basketball.
“To be recognized as the Outstanding Facility of the Year is a tremendous honor for Avondale,” said Bryan Hughes, Avondale’s parks and recreation director. “The award recognizes how the enhancements have combined both aesthetics and functionality to create a state of the art facility for the entire community to enjoy.”
