Keystone diamond was on D-11 and parks property

QUESTION: Why was the baseball diamond torn down in Keystone Park, near King Elementary School on Sapparo Drive?
- Karen Hamlett

ANSWER: Eric Anderson of School District 11 explained there was a long-standing joint-use agreement for this area between the parks department and D-11, and it expired. The north baseball diamond belongs to the school district, but the south diamond straddled the property line between school district property and the parks department's land — the property line running through home plate.
After a community meeting early last summer to discuss maintenance responsibilities, watering and other issues, the decision was made to remove the south field.
