It’s almost time to play ball in Queen Creek’s newest parks.
The town Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee approved a new work program for the coming fiscal year and gave updates on the newest park projects at its June 14 meeting.
The committee said as the town continues to grow, so too must the recreation facilities for residents. The work program lays out six priorities for the committee and was the only action the committee voted on.
The first two priorities include to “assist Town staff with review, feedback and input of design concepts” Frontier Family Park, Recreation & Aquatic Center and Mansel Carter Oasis Park.
The biggest discussion took place over the sports partnerships and field allocations with the residents taking priority as primary users.
“The opening of Frontier Family Park will increase the Town’s sport field inventory by nearly double,” according to town documents.
