Ennis’ Veterans Memorial Park is making progress, with the concession and restroom building nearing completion and light fixture work under way in the coming days after parts delivery this week. City Manager Steve Howerton said that while the fields would be playable at the beginning of the summer, officials might be considering whether to start play immediately or delay to allow further grass maturation. The park, built on land previously occupied by the former Ennis Intermediate School, was made possible by funding from the proceeds of the city’s former hospital and funding from the Ennis Economic Development Corporation.
