Commissioner William “Bill” Edwards District 7 is hosting a “three-in-one day” of special events to introduce three new amenities to the South Fulton Community.

TODAY, Friday, May 9, 2014, Commissioner Edwards will host a ground breaking for South Fulton’s Miracle League Baseball Field.   The field is designed to allow children and their families with special needs to play the sport on a special rubber surface to enable the kids to play with mobility in wheelchairs and walkers. Over the last 10 years South Fulton’s Miracle League Baseball Team has been utilizing Welcome All Park.   The new Miracle League Field will allow the team to have a field of their own that they can call home.

Following the ribbon cutting, Commissioner Edwards will host a ceremonial planting at South Fulton’s new Community Garden located at 5600 Stonewall Tell Road, College Park, GA 30349.   The 33 planter garden is designed specifically for citizens to plant and grow vegetables and flowers. The green initiative provides an opportunity for residents to develop healthy lifestyles for their families and the community.

The “three-in-one day” event ends with the ribbon cutting of South Fulton’s newly renovated Tennis Center.   The 24-court facility is located adjacent to the garden at 5645 Mason Road, College Park, GA 30349.   The center will offer a full range of tennis programs for the community as well as provide a viable, beautiful facility for individual play, lessons, youth tennis team play and tennis tournaments.

The series of events kick-off TODAY at 6:00 p.m. with the ground breaking at the Miracle League Field located at 5650 Mason Road, College Park, GA 30349.
