Field of Ability is a project launched on behalf of Quinte Challenger Baseball to construct a FULLY ACCESSIBLE, BARRIER FREE ball diamond. Over the years, players of Challenger Baseball have had difficulty reaching their full potential and fully benefiting from the game of baseball due to a very hard, rugged, non-accessible ball field. Our current field is a barrier; it does not promote independent play. It is hard to maneuver around for those using mobility devices and had an uneven terrain for those with gait issues.
Our goal is to revitalize an existing ball field in our community (Parkdale Veterans Park) into a fully-accessible, barrier-free ball field. This transformation would include a complete rubberized surface for easier mobility, promote independent play and physical activity. The Field of Ability will be fully fenced to increase safety for high risk runners and build self-esteem and confidence for those home run hitters… over the fence!
