The Freedom Park Baseball Complex, Pleasant Valley Recreation and Park District's most recent renovation, had its grand opening ceremony Saturday, February 2nd. A massive crowd of pony baseball players and spectators arrived to enjoy the festivities and start using the new fields. The event included giveaways, free food, and a couple of friendly games played by some of the local teams.
Special guests at the ceremony include State Senator Hannah Beth Jackson, Vice Mayor Kevin Kildee, Supervisor Kathy Long, and former Camarillo Blue Sox player Joe Ortiz. Former MLB players Chuck Fick, Robert Fick, Paul McAnulty, Rich Rodriguez, and Dmitri Young also came out to show their support of the new baseball complex.
Freedom Park is a 33.86 acre park conveniently located at the Camarillo Airport. This park features facilities for all ages to enjoy. The new Freedom Park Baseball Complex features lighted baseball fields - 4 youth and 1 adult. For the extreme sports junkie we offer the Freedom Park BMX Raceway, a dirt track open for BMX racing and practice. For those who like to race remote control cars we have dirt and asphalt tracks available at the Freedom Park R/C Track. The Freedom Park In-Line Hockey Rink is the place to be if roller hockey is your thing. For a more low key time Freedom Park has picnic tables, BBQ grills, horseshoe pits, a playground, and restrooms. To educate the young ones there is the Pleasant Valley Cooperative Preschool which offers a creative experience in learning. Freedom Park is a great park for any get together.
