The City of Windsor and Farrow Riverside Miracle Park Organizers received a funding windfall from Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities.

Back in February of this year, the City in partnership with the Riverside Minor Baseball Association applied for a Jumpstart Accessibility Grant in hopes of securing financial support for some of the inclusive elements being installed at the Miracle Park within the Riverside Baseball Park.

The Jumpstart Accessibility Grant will help pay for:

  • New pour in place rubber surfacing on the Miracle Diamond
  • A new multi-use wellness track around the park
  • 3 fully accessible baseball-themed workout stations
  • New bleachers with shade sails at the Miracle Diamond
  • New accessible dugouts with player’s benches
  • 4 covered accessible picnic tables
  • 3 years of Miracle League Association membership fees

The Riverside Baseball Park is Windsor’s accessible and inclusive destination park with a fully accessible playground and the Farrow Riverside Miracle Park and Baseball Diamond that is expected to have a grand opening in spring 2021.
