In June, 2007, Westchester County and the City of Yonkers opened three new synthetic turf soccer fields in Tibbetts Brook Park. Located at the north end of this Westchester County Park adjacent to the Cross County Parkway, a varsity size soccer field and two smaller 11v11 fields have been built and are now in use. Two existing baseball fields were also renovated.
Westchester County paid for this project as part of the County’s Legacy Program, which uses County funds to help municipalities create additional recreational facilities.
A second project in Tibbetts Brook Park will involve upgrading athletic fields at the south end of the park. A new synthetic turf field for Gallic Football, a Little League baseball field and an 8v8 youth soccer field are expected to be constructed over the next several years.
Congratulations and thanks to all in the Westchester County Government and the Yonkers community who helped promote this project and see it through to successful completion.
