New Baseball Diamond a Destination in Warwick
Drive through the Township of Warwick on any weekend in the summer and you’ll find a crowd at the local baseball diamond.
A small township located between the cities of London and Sarnia, Warwick has a population of 3,900 – and its baseball diamond is a social hub in the community.
Thanks to the Canada Community-Building Fund, The Township of Warwick was able to build a new baseball diamond in 2020 – including turf, lighting, fencing and bench seating.
This past weekend, the community proudly played its first game at the new facility.
With the completion of this project, Warwick Township has put itself on the map as a destination for competitive baseball and softball tournaments. More than 14 local community teams use the facility four nights a week, with tournaments scheduled several weekends throughout the summer. Without the installation of the new diamond, Warwick simply wouldn’t have been able to continue offering the same level of recreational service.
The new diamond also allowed the Township to decommission an older baseball field, to make way for facility upgrades to its recreation centre. These essential projects are expanding Warwick’s amenity offerings, resulting in more economic development and population growth as the community is gaining recognition as great place to live and work.
The Canada Community-Building Fund is proud to invest in projects that make up the social fabric of communities like Warwick Township. Facilities like Warwick’s new baseball field provide residents a place to socialize, keep active and feel a great sense of community pride.
