UPDATE: Drainage installation is complete at the Ogden Park football stadium. Drainage improvements are currently underway at Ogden Parks’s Five Acre field now.
New Hanover County Parks & Gardens has been working to install underground drainage systems to some of our rectangular multi-purpose fields. These new drainage systems will help reduce the amount of time we have to close the fields due to wet conditions, therefore, increasing the amount of playing time on these fields. Drainage systems have already been installed at Northern Regional Park Red and Green fields, and Eaton Elementary School #1, #3 and #4 fields. Drainage installation is currently underway at the Ogden Park football stadium, and is expected to be complete in early March, depending on the weather. After that, we plan to begin installation on the Ogden Park “Five Acre” field. We appreciate your patience as we work to improve and increase the usage of our multi-purpose fields.
