The Athletic Field became part of the Geneseo Park District on June 1, 2000. For many, the old athletic field was a quick jog down from the junior high under the direction of Elmer Reedy and/or JoAnne Gernant during P.E. class. Many Geneseo football alumni vividly remember moments from their legendary youth football days on the athletic field gridiron

athletic-field-trackThe Athletic Field is located on East North Street (1 block west of Community Center). The Geneseo Park District runs youth sports programs such as flag football, tennis, and golf at the Athletic Field.

ATHLETIC FIELD PROJECT

WHAT IS CHANGING AT THE ATHLETIC FIELD?

A new 42’ x 70’ building with a press box is planned to be completed by the end of 2020 at the Athletic Field.  This new structure will replace the existing building. The space will include an area for Youth Football concessions and equipment storage. The Park District will have space in the building to house Day Camp and also for rentals and all of the FREE events the Park District Foundation sponsors at the Athletic Field.

 

HOW MUCH WILL THE NEW BUILDING COST?

The cost of the new building is estimated to be approximately $360,000.   The Geneseo Foundation has graciously granted $50,000 to kick off the project with an additional $50,000 matching opportunity for each dollar raised. Geneseo Youth Football is partnering with the Geneseo Park District Foundation to help raise funds for the Park District. This is a fantastic community collaboration project and we are excited for the updated space.

 

HOW CAN I HELP WITH THIS PROJECT?

All donations will be directed to the Geneseo Park District Foundation and  donations of $500 or more are eligible for recognition on the Geneseo Park District Foundation’s Donor Wall located in the main hallway of the Community Center.  >>Learn More

The first $50,000 donated will be matched dollar for dollar by The Geneseo Foundation.
