If You Build It...

...they can play safely.

BRANNY & Crandall Park Beautification Committee Team Up to Build a Field House of Dreams

The Builders and Remodelers Association of Northern New York (BRANNY) has contributed $1,000 to the Crandall Park Beautification Committee to rebuild the Field House at Crandall Park.

The members of BRANNY have also committed to supplying materials and labor to see the project to fruition. Groundbreaking is scheduled for early fall of 2007 with a spring 2008 completion.

The existing Field House was constructed in 1921 near the pond and served as a warming hut for ice skaters, until it was moved to its current location. An addition was built in 1931. The building, which has fallen into disrepair, is used year round.

Plans for the new Field House include basement space with potential utilization as dressing rooms for performers from the amphitheatre performances, such as the recent GE sponsored concerts. There will also be increased energy efficiency and heightened curb appeal for this edifice along one of the City’s primary corridors.
