Trafalgar Sports Park “Field of Dreams” Diamonds Ready for Use

HALTON HILLS, ON - After years of planning, fundraising and construction, Trafalgar Sports Park’s three new diamonds are ready for play. The ball diamonds will be in full use this year by local sports leagues and residents in line with the Province’s Roadmap to Reopening protocols.


“I am happy to see these diamonds completed and ready for use,” said Mayor Rick Bonnette. “I want to thank our local sport groups, residents and Town staff for collaborating to complete this project, it is an amazing facility and a great addition to the sports park.”


The fully accessible facility features three full size lit, irrigated ball diamonds including fencing and bleachers. A picnic shelter has been placed at the hub of the diamonds with additional tree planting along both sides of the adjacent pathways. The last phase of the “Field of Dreams” project is in the final stages of design and will see the construction of a washroom and concession building in the park in 2022.


With the completion of the additional three diamonds, the park now features four diamonds in total and 11 sports fields.


The diamonds were funded through a partnership between the Town, Halton Hills Minor Baseball Association (HHMBA) and Georgetown Slo-Pitch League (GSL). Additionally, a grant in the amount of $150,000.00 was secured through the Ontario Trillium Foundation.


In addition to a diamond named in recognition of the Hornby ball community, Council has supported Diamond #3 at Trafalgar Sports Park being named in recognition of DeeDee Haynes-Ridley, a local citizen and volunteer who made significant contributions to sport and community within the Town. After her tragic passing in April of 2021, four local baseball groups, representing over 2,700 participants, requested the diamond be named in DeeDee’s memory.


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Halton Hills’ usual tradition of hosting a grand opening celebration was not possible. Residents are encouraged to drop by and use the facility at their leisure, while adhering to the Province’s gathering restrictions and following social distancing protocols.
