A western Prince William County park is receiving new fields.
The second part of the Catharpin Regional Park project has begun.
Representatives from Prince William County, Shirley Contracting Company, and the Virginia Soccer Association (VSA) participated in a groundbreaking ceremony for the second phase on Tuesday.
Six rectangular fields, an asphalt trail, and parking that’s compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) are going to be installed, according to a release from Prince William County Parks, Recreation & Tourism.
“Today is a wonderful day for the citizens of the Gainesville District, as we break ground on the second phase of Catharpin Park and the development of these much-needed soccer fields,” Supervisor Candland said in a release. “I look forward to coming out next spring to watch our young players on these fields.”
Excavation is expected to start in a couple of weeks, according to Park Engineer and Project Manager Armarjit Riat. Turf, a stormwater management system and erosion controls will be added, as well.
Project leaders are planning to wrap up the work by June 2020.
Established six years ago, Catharpin Regional Park stands at 12500 Kyle Wilson Way in Catharpin. It currently features two softball fields and three Little League fields.
