TUCSON, Ariz. -- A ground breaking celebration Wednesday at Lincoln Park on the east side.

The City of Tucson dedicated four new softball fields. The new additions will make it eight softball fields at the park.  The fields will have lights and a concessions building with restrooms.

"This is a very important thing there was a bad project that was passed by the voters in 2004.  We're thrilled that the $3.4 million investment will probably endure for quite sometime in the future. I am very happy about that," said Tucson Councilwoman Shirley Scott.

The construction of the four fields is expected to be completed by August of this year.
