The “Field of Dreams” recreation complex likely won’t be seeded until spring, Parks Director Maureen Dunfey said.
The fields were scheduled to be seeded this fall, and the change may mean that the complex won’t open for play until fall of 2008, rather than the spring of that year, Dunfey said.
“We’ll have to see how [the grass] comes in, I guess, once it starts growing,” she said. Drainage for the site won’t be installed until Oct. 28, Dunfey said, which may be too late to plant the grass seed.
“We don’t want to spend all that money and not have it come in,” she said.
