All residents of Riverview and Alumni of Douglass Elementary-High School are invited to attend the ribbon-cutting that opens up Brickyard Park.
The "Clay Hill Ballfields" are the marquee attraction on the site of historic Clay Hill, once the "unofficial playground" of nearby Riverview residents for generations.
We, as alumni, neighbors and former Clay Hill playgrounders need attend the ribbon-cutting in full force, and celebrate this new chapter in our former playground's history.
The project, beset by construction delays because of bad weather in the spring and fall, will open in July for softball and baseball games. These fields replace the former Eastman Ballfields on Wilcox Boulevard, now under construction for Eastman Chemical's new Project Inspire headquarters expansion.
Denark Construction of Knoxville was the builder of the new ballfields.
