Gillette will continue building a splash pad but not a fourth field at the “Field of Dreams.”

The City Council first agreed to a contract with Powder River Construction of Gillette to build a splash pad and an Americans with Disabilities Act compliant, all-inclusive park inside the Energy Capital Sports Complex.

[thumbup]Kudos to our City Council for their vision and commitment to diversifying Gillette's economy!! Tourism is a very good industry for us to invest in and can be even more with the addition of amenities like the splash park and softball fields. It would also be great to have a rink with artificial ice like Deadwood has for ice skating year-round! We also need a fixed-route public transportation system to bring residents and visitors, especially children, to our many facilities, shopping, restaurants and parks. Lack of access is a huge deterrent to locals and guests to using our great amenities. Keep moving forward, Gillette!
