Winston Wells Ball Field Closed for Renovation and Landscaping


Department of Sports, Parks and Recreation Commissioner St. Claire Williams announced last week that the Winston Wells Ball Park on St. John will be closed until October 1 to allow for ongoing renovation and landscaping of the facility.

Williams noted that residents of St. John in collaboration with the department have organized a group of community volunteers to enhance the playing field of the Winston Wells ball field and have begun to rake, remove stones and begin the process of seeding the ground for grass to grow.

“Although the ball park will have to be closed for a short period of time, the work being done will insure to make it much safer and a better playing field for years to come,” said Williams.

The commissioner also thanked all the volunteers, businesses, government agencies and staff who are working together to make this project possible.
