After about a year and a half of planning, work has begun on the four ball diamonds at Centennial Park in Humboldt.

“Our ball diamonds have seen a number of years where we haven't been able to maintain them to where we’d like to. And this year we’re going to be putting those diamonds back into the shape they should be in,” director of leisure services Mike Ulriksen said.

With about $150,000 to work with from this year’s city budget, the diamonds will get some new backstops, side fencing and dugouts, and spruced up fields. Work will also begin on two new fields by the skateboard park.

The work will continue through the summer but shouldn’t affect the leagues that use the existing diamonds, Ulriksen said.

“When it’s all said and done, when the grounds are back up to where we all want them to be, it’ll be attractive for bringing tournaments into town, for just the growth of minor sports here in town as well, which is very important.”

This spring will also see the development of green space on the northeast corner of the park, he said.

Previous years have seen work done on the parking lot and addressing drainage issues.
