Work on Woodland's own "Field of Dreams", Scott Hill Park & Sports Complex, continues to make headway. Current work on the park is focused on completion of the park Master Plan in preparation for Site Plan Review with the City of Woodland, identifying and pursuing public funding and foundation grant opportunities along with local fundraising.
With a conceptual design for the 40-acre park and sports complex including amenities needed to meet the community's needs while generating sufficient revenue to make the park economically sustainable, a marketing study supporting a positive market opportunity, required technical site studies completed, input from the community and recommendations from consultants, the park is poised to move forward. A recently completed economic impact analysis highly supports the positive effect the park will have on the Woodland and regional communities.
