Bellefonte’s Governors Park Update

By opening day Governors Park in Bellefonte will have a new look

The Bellefonte Borough received a $850,000 dollar grant for the big time make over

The State Department of Economic and Community Development will help improve the John Montgomery Ward Baseball Field

Those improvements include a new press box, dugouts, infield turf, and a new drainage system

Donald Holderman the Bellefonte Assistant Borough Manager told us that the infield tends to hold water at Governors Park

The new system will help alleviate some of those current draining issues

The project is expected to be finished by the time baseball season rolls around in 2023

The field is primarily used by the Bellefonte Area School District but American Legion and Community Summer League teams also play there

Holderman believes the new upgrades will be an economic boost for local business as they hope to draw in summertime tournaments
