Working with CPL, the City of Kingston has begun Phase 1 of a multi-phased, comprehensive restoration of its major sports complex. The Dietz/Andretta complex is the Kingston City School District’s home field for football, track, the marching band, and special activities such as the annual high school graduation ceremony. Residents and community groups also regularly use the facilities for swimming, walking, and a wide variety of other events.
Originally built in the 1940’s, the main stadium is in dire need of structural repairs and upgrades, as is the Andretta Pool facility, which was added to the complex in the 1970’s.
This important project has been kick-started with $2.5 million, which will cover the costs of a full master plan that includes improvements to the pool and pool house (including installation of a new splash pad!), scoreboard, bleachers, water fountains, fencing and gates, sound and Wi-Fi systems, lighting, bike racks, locker rooms, bathrooms, food vending, signage, parking and more.
