The Greater Huntington Parks and Recreation District is working to revitalize the St. Cloud Commons area, and has begun that process by demolishing unsightly structures.
The grandstand and restrooms for St. Cloud Commons Softball Field Four were torn down Wednesday afternoon. Both structures were not used in years and were safety hazards.
The park board hopes the area on Huntington's West End becomes more appealing after all the improvements it plans to make. There will be new free-standing metal bleachers and new fencing around the area built in the spring. Officials also plan to re-purpose the tennis courts that haven't been in use for quite some time. The playground facility was recently upgraded, and there are plans for its expansion.
Kevin Brady, executive director of the Greater Huntington Parks and Recreation District, said with the completion of the Paul Ambrose Trail loop through the Commons, it makes it more accessible to residents.
