A new accessible baseball diamond in Brampton, Ont. is ready for play in the spring.

The Judith Nyman Field of Dreams was a partnership initiative between the city and Peel District School board with additional grant money from the Jays Care Foundation Field of Dreams.

Located between Judith Nyman Secondary School and Williams Parkway Senior Public School, the ball field features an accessible ramp, concrete access pathways toward the field, and additional parking at the Terry Miller Recreation Centre parking lot.

It includes an artificial turf infield with a natural grass outfield and a hard-packed gravel warning track. Modifications have been made to the 60-foot base paths and pitcher’s mound, and the outfield is shorter.

The field’s location gives it easy access to Highway 410.
