The City of Patterson Sports Park Complex is located at 16651 Ward Avenue and currently has two softball fields, which are heavily used especially in the evening hours. Recreation department schedules the games for little league baseball, county baseball, softball, Jr. Giants, and adult softball. Lighting for Field #1 was installed during phase-1 construction. Currently Field #2 is not being effectively utilized due to no lighting on the field for the evening hours.


As part of the Sport Park Complex phase two construction, LED lights will be installed on Field #2. This will double the recreational use capabilities in the evening hours and teams will have more frequent access to use both fields. The installation of new LED lights will allow more use of both fields during evening hours.




City staff determined that this project would be completed more efficiently with the use of a group purchasing agreement rather than the traditional design, bid, build process. Musco Sports Lighting, LLC will provide and install the complete lighting system for field #2.
