In March 2014 the Park Board accepted a revised Carroll Park site plan following a community meeting January 2014. (See more about the Carroll Park site planning process.) The plan calls for ball field improvements including a new backstop, new spectator and player areas with shade structures, field irrigation and regrading. The plan also includes a children’s discovery area with boulders for sitting and climbing to be located north of the Kenilworth Avenue cul-de-sac. Construction is expected to last from August through November 2014, but the field will not be re-opened until April 2015 to allow the turf time to get well established.
