Field of Dreams, Robinson Park Multi Purpose Field Grand Opening

African American news from Pasadena - Robinson Park Grand ReopeningAfrican American news from Pasadena - Robinson Park Grand ReopeningFor Greg Mosley and Ishmael Trone the Robinson Park multi-purpose field is a dream come true. Ten years ago the first meeting launched a collaboration of community and city resources that took their idea from  drawings to reality.

 "I am humbled by this ten years of hard work has been rewarded," says Greg Mosley, Chairperson of Robinson Park. His committee was established by Councilmember Chris Holden to begin the process that ultimately led to the athletic field.

The newly completed projects include the first regulation-size football field in Pasadena. Other modifications include synthetic turf, a soccer overlay, reconfigured baseball diamonds, new restrooms, a concession stand, field lighting, electronic scoreboards, bleachers and a storage building.

"It's a long overdue project that exceeds all of our expectations," says Ishmael Trone, of Robinson Park's Master Plan Oversight committee. "Northwest Pasadena deserves a quality facility such as this one." Trone's committee was responsible for working with the city to assure that the needs and expectations of the citizens were being met.

Both Trone and Mosley admit their work is not done. Next are the discussions for phase two of this three-phase project.

Phase Two will include demolishing the existing recreation and gymnasium buildings and constructing a new recreation center at a cost of 2.71 million dollars.
