Diamond Point Park

This spring and summer, the usual adult softball leagues at the Bourbonnais Township Park District’s Diamond Point Park will not take place after the cancellations of the men’s, church and co-ed leagues.

BOURBONNAIS — Bourbonnais Township Park District commissioners approved a one-year contract with the current company that leases the baseball fields at Diamond Point Complex.

Under terms on the new agreement, the cost of leasing the ball fields for this Bourbonnais business increased by nearly 43%.

The new contract with Ballpark Sports Baseball Inc. of Bourbonnais runs from April 1 to August 1, 2023. Herb Forkenbrock, of Bourbonnais, owns the business.
