As reported at My Panhandle, Frank Brown Park has worked with the City of Panama City Beach to make several improvements to multiple facilities.

There are now four brand new batting cages, which makes for a total of eight on-site. There are 10 new LED scoreboards on the field and new LED lights on fields. Batting boxes were upgraded and drainage problems were also fixed.

Umpires have also been given a hangout of their own called the Blue Lounge. Each official has their own locker and there is an area for the umpires to eat.

There are also several opportunities for locals to enjoy the park regularly. There is a bike trail that begins at the park and dog parks. However, Ponek said people are also invited out to use athletic facilities.

“We’re open for lap swim at the aquatic center Monday through Sunday and we have swim lessons going on we have a few summer camps, you can rent the fields for practices when the tournament isn’t happening,” Ponek said.

A youth soccer organization will also get underway soon. In addition, an adult softball league is set to begin in September. To sign up for those leagues, go to the park’s website.

The park is also hiring right now because more maintenance workers are needed. To apply for a position go to
