Josey Ranch Field #6  was originally built in 1989 as a stand-alone baseball field, rather than a four-plex, and was underutilized and in need of repairs. The City’s Parks & Recreation Department saw this as a perfect opportunity to bridge the gap in programming for adaptive-centric opportunities and rejuvenate the area, turning it into a multi-use field for adaptive offerings.

As part of the upgrade, the existing field was converted to a low-pile synthetic turf that provides a more functional surface for wheelchairs and individuals with special needs.

Additionally, a new backstop, fencing, drainage, and wider dugouts were installed according to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Standards for Accessible Design.

For questions or availability, call 972-466-4862, or email shelby.carradine@cityofcarrollton.com.
