Slayter Creek fields unlocked
Two ball fields at Slayter Creek Park are now unlocked. Field 2 and Field 3 are available for public use on a first-come, first-serve basis seven days a week. Field 1 and Field 4 are still available by reservation only.
The move was suggested as a compromise by Anna’s Parks Advisory Board. All four fields had been locked to ensure they would be in good condition for ballgames. However, some neighbors complained that it wasn’t right to keep them locked and out of use at other times when there were people in the community looking for a place to play. Mayor Pike warily endorse the compromise during the June 22 council meeting. He and several others at the meeting also voiced concern that the fields could be damaged or vandalized.
