A number of volunteers stepped up  on 7/26-27 to help make the Lakeville Miracle Field  Playground  a Twin Cities first.  Many are familiar with Miracle Field baseball parks,  including Lakeville's located at King Park on Dodd Blvd. across from the Lakeville Police Department.

 

The new Miracle Field Playground is being installed right next to the Miracle Field baseball diamond.
