WASHINGTON, D.C. – (RealEstateRama) — Officials from the City of Sacramento, Robla School District, and Sacramento Housing and Redevelopment Agency will celebrate the completion of the new Main Avenue Sports Field made possible through a joint partnership between the three entities. Currently used by the school district for children to play soccer and other physical exercise during school hours, officials expect word of the new “field of dreams” to spread throughout the community and attract a variety of year round sports activity including soccer and baseball.
WHAT: Ribbon cutting celebration with the entire elementary school population for the Main Avenue Sports Field in Main Avenue Park.
WHO: City Councilmember Allen Warren; Robla School District Superintendent Ruben Reyes; Members of the Board of Trustees; Sacramento Housing and Redevelopment Agency Executive Director La Shelle Dozier.
Friday, April 15 at 9 a.m. Program begins at 9:15 a.m.
WHERE: Main Avenue Elementary School, 1400 Main Avenue, Sacramento 95838
WHY: The Robla School District lacked a developed grassy area on site suitable for students to engage in outdoor physical exercise during school hours. There was no park or recreational space in proximity to the surrounding neighborhood for the public to enjoy organized sports or family gatherings when school is not in session.
