On Tuesday, November 3rd, representing the State Farm Insurance Corporation, Dean Hendrickson and Sarah Skofield, both State Farm Agents presented Jeff Dickerson, President of the Livingston Youth Soccer Association and Chairperson for the Northside Park and Soccer Fields Project with a check for $2000 as a contribution to Phase 2 of the Park’s Project. This check matched the combined $1000 donations made by both Dean and Sarah.
A Capital Campaign is in full force to raise the $600,000 – $700,000 needed for Phase 2 which includes over 7.5 acres of park and green space development, more trees, picnic tables and benches, a pathway that traverses the park, room for a third soccer field, the west parking lot and site preparation for a support building and east parking lot. All of this completes the goal for converting the 18 acres of city land into park space. Area residents are encouraged to go to the Park and see for themselves how NSPSF will be a wonderful asset to the Livingston community as a whole. While the pathway is open for use, the grass areas are at a critical growth stage and people are asked tp refrain from walking on the grass until the Park officially opens in August 2011.
The NSPSF Project is a collaborative effort between the City of Livingston and LYSA. In August 2011 and after the Grand Opening, the Park will be accessible to everyone.
