UB, City Partner To Renovate Seaside Park Ballfield

October 26th, 2017 · 1 Comment · Development and Zoning, News and Events

From UB:

The University of Bridgeport (UB) and City of Bridgeport will break ground on renovations to Diamond #1 at Seaside Park on Friday, October 27 at 11:30 a.m.

The baseball field that is widely used by the Bridgeport community, and UB and city officials in August previously announced a partnership to upgrade the popular facility, which is enjoyed by many youth groups, recreational teams, and families.

UB is providing a 2:1 investment match for the design and development of the baseball diamond, stadium seating, press box, and other assets. The University also will assume responsibility for establishing an initial budget and development timeline, as well as future maintenance of the field.

As a result, UB athletes, community teams, and local children will all be able to take advantage of the collegiate athletic complex at the picturesque Seaside Park alongside UB’s campus.

The field is the latest project between UB and the City to bring the love of sports to the people of Bridgeport. In 2013, UB joined forces with its home city to build Diamond #2, a brand new softball field, also located at Seaside Park, to benefit both community teams and the school’s softball program.
