Representatives of South County Little League broke ground Friday for construction of a concession stand/bathroom facility at Lower Potomac Park.
The field has undergone numerous renovations over the past five years, and the concession stand is scheduled to be completed this spring.
"Based on these efforts, a new sense of community has been established at the park with children as young as four playing baseball on the new tee ball field alongside teenagers playing baseball on the 90 foot baseball field," according to South County Little League Board member Bob Kirk in an email to Patch.
A number of local contributors were present at the ceremony, including representatives from Covanta Energy, Foulger Pratt, Vulcan Materials Company, BC Architects Engineers, PLC, Coffman Construction and Enviro Solutions, Inc.
Since 2007, new scoreboards with solar power were installed, two new baseball fields were completed and a new irrigation system that uses effluent water from the Noman Cole Water Treatment Plant was installed, according to the South County Little League website.
