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 re-configuring 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 handicap-accessible parking, 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.
