Summertime is here, and we hope everyone is enjoying it!
We are very excited that a groundbreaking was held on May 20 for the new Miracle League Baseball Field that is being built at Hoover Sports Park East. We are glad to invest in this fully accessible field, and we feel that this is much needed in our community and will impact the lives of many families.
There will also be a fully accessible playground adjoining the field. City officials would like to thank the non-profit Over the Mountain Miracle League that helped turn this field of dreams into a reality. This dedicated group of people raised about $70,000 towards the field. Construction will begin in June, and the field should open this fall.
We are also very excited that the City of Hoover will be hosting Freedom Fest on the Fourth of July at the Hoover Met Stadium. This will be a three-hour music festival from 6-9 p.m. with a magnificent fireworks show closing out the evening! The gates will open to the event at 5 p.m., and you can come out early to see the car show or let your children play on the inflatables. Admission is free, but the concession stands will be open so you might purchase food. Don’t forget we have plenty of free parking as well and easy access in and out of The Met. The musical entertainment acts will be Three on a String, The Total Assets and Steve Padilla. For additional details about the event, you can visit hooveralabama.gov or call City Hall at 444-7500.
Hoover has something for all ages. Please don’t hesitate to call our office if we can assist you. Our staff will continue to work hard to exceed your expectations!
