Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner and state Sen. John DeFrancisco dedicated new soccer fields at a ceremony Tuesday at Schiller Park.

The fields are the result of a $100,000 grant that DeFrancisco secured for the city of Syracuse. Construction on the fields was finished in September and they will be available for public use starting in the spring.

“These fields will be an asset to the Syracuse community for generations to come. Schiller Park has been a center for sports, recreation, and activities for many years and these new fields will continue to make it a hub for our community,” Miner said. “This park is now home to families from many nations who can now enjoy soccer and outdoor recreation for years to come.”

The new fields will be able to accommodate one regulation adult soccer game or two youth games at the same time, and will also be used for other sporting and recreation activities.

“I was very pleased to help obtain funds for this important project,” DeFrancisco said. “The new soccer fields at Schiller Park in Syracuse will create a safe recreational area for our youth to hone their skills in soccer and to participate in other sports.”
