SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. — In a significant effort to combat the city's lack of park space, the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation, in partnership with the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians and the city of San Bernardino, opened three state-of-the-art Dodger Dreamfields at Blair Park.

According to Parks for California, 65% of San Bernardino residents live in areas with less than three acres of park space per 1,000 people. 

The $1.7 million project aims to transform the landscape of local youth sports, impacting over 9,800 children by providing them with a premier environment to foster their athletic and personal growth.

Since 2003, the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation has invested over $20 million to refurbish more than 60 Dodgers Dreamfields, granting more than 400,000 kids access to playable baseball and softball fields. 

The initiative highlights a pivotal step in addressing recreational disparity in underserved areas, showcasing the profound impact of strategic partnerships in community development.
