Wiregrass Field Project

Wiregrass Park Flag Football Fields

Project Project Description: 

This project will consist of repurposing softball/baseball fields located behind the Wiregrass Recreation

Center into six multi-purpose fields to be utilized for flag football, soccer, and other recreation

sports. The project will include regrading and reconfiguring the existing fields, upgrading the existing

parking infrastructure including adding connectivity to the upper and lower parking lots, new parking

spots will be added in addition to new hhandicap-accessibleparking, new storm drainage, sidewalks, new

field and parking lot lighting, upgrades to the existing concrete bleachers, and a new maintenance barn

for the entire complex. Phase II of the project will add a new restroom and concessions building. The

Wiregrass Fields project is a collaboration between the City of Dothan, Visit Dothan, and Izell Reese,

Director of NFL Flag.

This project is funded by the City of Dothan. In addition to providing much-needed playing space for

recreation teams and leagues, these fields will provide the Dothan Leisure Services department with another

venue to attract local and regional multi-sport tournaments.

Project Timeline:

Work began on this project in August 2022. The project completion date is projected to be June 2023.

Wiregrass Park Recreation Center will celebrate its 40th Birthday on June 19, 2023, and it is hopeful we

will celebrate the opening of these fields by this date.
