Thanks to a public/private sector collaboration between the Leon County Board of County Commissioners and Consulting Solutions International (CSI), Inc., children can now field balls and steal home after the sun goes down at Canopy Oaks Park. The park, located next to Canopy Oaks Elementary, boasts a brand new lighting system on the softball field. On Wednesday, April 4, the Leon County Board of County Commissioners, joined by Superintendent Jackie Pons and representatives of the Northwest Little League thanked CSI, Inc. for the company’s generous donation of $69,000, which made the lights possible.

Leon County Parks and Recreation recently installed the new Musco lighting system, which is designed to be both sensitive to the surrounding neighborhood and environmentally friendly. Parks and Recreation staff uses a computer system to control the lights, which are programmed to turn off no later than 10 p.m. The lights will not be turned on at all on evenings when no events are scheduled. Surrounding neighborhoods will also appreciate the special downward-aiming focus of the lights, which reduces light pollution. In addition, the Musco lighting system is considered a “Green-Light Design” because the lights are strong enough that fewer lamps are needed to light the field, resulting in considerable energy savings.

After the ceremony, District 3 Commissioner John Dailey threw out the first pitch for the Little League Softball game between the Sunbirds and the Thunder.
