Dick Gagliardi’s project to revitalize Veterans Memorial Park in Aurelius is moving ahead after receiving a $300,000 state grant.
The project was endorsed by the Central New York Regional Economic Development Council and awarded the grant through the NYS Office of Parks in December, according to The Citizen.
Gagliardi plans to use the funds to replace the baseball fields with two new softball fields and upgrade the park’s concession stand and bathrooms. He anticipates the fields being ready for tournaments in 2023.
