Proposed Tilcon Field
at Crown Heights Park
Tilcon has donated the land adjacent to Crown Heights Park to build a new field. The land has been excavated and is ready for final grading
This is a concept drawing of the layout of the baseball field including parking, dugouts, batting cages and sponsorship memorial. Funding for Phase II (building the field)
is underway. Our goal is for the field to be ready for play for the Spring 2014 Season.
