Town of Caledon Breaks Ground for New Baseball Diamonds in Bolton

Submitted to Just Sayin' Caledon

Today, the Town of Caledon held a groundbreaking ceremony celebrating the new baseball diamonds that will be part of a new sports park located at the corner of Duffy’s Lane and Emil Kolb Parkway in Bolton.

Funded entirely through development charge revenue, the new sports park will feature two baseball diamonds with lighting, a parking lot and reserved space for a future washroom/change room building.

“Today is an exciting day for Caledon youth as we continue to add to our sports parks with two new baseball diamonds,” said Mayor Allan Thompson.  “As we continue to grow, it is important to invest in outdoor amenities to stay active and involved within our community. I look forward to seeing the Caledon Minor Baseball Association playing in these diamonds and games being enjoyed by families, friends and residents.”

The creation of this new sports park is possible thanks to a property management agreement between the Town and the Toronto Regional Conservation Authority (TRCA). The TRCA owns the land where the new diamonds will be built, and the Town can use and maintain proposed properties as parkland. Currently the Town manages several properties under this agreement including: Jack Garratt Park; Dick’s Dam Park, Edelweiss Park; and Palgrave Tennis Club.

The new baseball diamonds are expected to open in June 2023.
