Play Ball! Village of Islandia Officially Opens First Responders Recreational Ball Field

On June 2, the Village of Islandia held its grand opening of the First Responders Recreational Ball Field, just in time for the summer. Mayor Allan Dorman and village officials were joined by local first responders, firefighters, and police officers; representatives from Delaware North and the Bolla Foundation; local war veterans and elected officials for this special event.

The ceremony began with the unveiling and dedication of the memorial honoring local responders who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. Mayor Dorman then led the dedication of the ball field and threw out the ceremonial first pitch.

In addition to a state-of-the-art ball field and concession stand and memorial, the park also includes a walking path with exercise stations. Local businesses provided more than $2.5 million to make this project a reality, including Delaware North (the operator of Jake’s 58), the Bolla Foundation and Breslin Realty.

“We are proud to open the First Responders Recreational Ball Field to the residents,” Mayor Dorman said. “It is truly an honor to dedicate this park in the memory of our brave first responders. I foresee the park becoming the focal point of our village, where we will be able to come together as a community and enjoy an enhanced quality of life that living in a village provides.”
