A new concession stand building at Pioneer Park will include an announcer’s booth on the top. The new stand when finished, will be at the Optimist and Sam Marcum baseball and softball fields at Pioneer Park, where the City of La Grande Parks and Recreation Department is partnering with the La Grande School District, volunteers, and donors to make major improvements at the two fields and replace the shared concession stand. The new concession stand will also have dressing room for umpires. Other improvements are also being done, with the total cost of the project coming in at about $256,000.
