The Orono Parks Commission is working to provide a sports field at Bederwood Park as well as expanding and paving the parking lot. The intent of the project is to provide a facility to support youth sports efforts in the area. To help offset the cost of the project the city received a grant from the Hennepin County youth sports grant program for $136,275.
The project was awarded in August 2019.
Work is scheduled for September -October of 2019.
Weather permitting the field should be open to play in September of 2020.
