Canadian Tire charity helps complete accessible ball diamond project in Windsor

Jumpstart program contributes $354,000 to project

October 29, 2020  By Turf & Rec

Canadian Tire’s Jumpstart charity is contributing more than $350,000 toward the completion of the Farrow Riverside Miracle Park project in Windsor

The application for Jumpstart funding was a joint venture between the city and the Riverside Minor Baseball Association. The park provides opportunities for youth with special needs. More than $2 million was raised by the baseball association while the city spent $1.5 million in upgrades to make the park more accessible.

Canadian Tire’s charitable contribution will help furnish a new pour-in-place rubber surface for the ball diamond as well as a new perimeter track, new bleachers and new dugouts.

The city plans to stage a grand opening of the completed park in the spring of 2021.
