- APF 2012 CHALLENGE GRANT
- Sponsor: Polar Little League and Mountain View Lions Club
- Award: $50,000
Polar Little League was awarded a Challenge Grant to do safety improvements to the Davis Park Ballfields. In the fall of 2011, Davis Park received a D on its park report card. In 2012 and 2013, the Mountain View Lions Club and the Polar Little League helped make many improvements to the park. Three baseball fields were renovated, a bullpen was added, and repair work was done to the fencing and dugouts. In addition, many general site improvements were made throughout the park. With these efforts, the surrounding community hopes to boost participation in the Little League and increase use of the park.
