Miracle Field grand opening

Play ball! BRAX Stadium PPD Miracle Field and the Kiwanis Miracle Playground at Olsen Park officially opened on August 3, 2013.

According to the Miracle League, nearly 1 in 5 people in New Hanover, Brunswick, Columbus and Pender counties have a disability and many are unable to participate in organized sports due to a lack of safe and accessible facilities. The Miracle Field and playground is the first fully accessible park locally. It will offer a dedicated space to play baseball and enjoy the outdoors - promoting physical activity, camaraderie, a sense of teamwork and fun for all!

The Miracle Field was made possible with private/public partnership and is named for PPD. Though the facility is complete, those who want to donate can still buy an imprinted brick for the entryway to the field, “The Walk of Champions.”

Olsen Park is located at 5510 Olsen Park Lane off North College Road Northchase Industrial Parkway. Click here for directions.
