This year’s goal is to raise $25,000 by Championship Weekend, June 17, 2017. This money will be used to fund two large projects at the park:
- Replacement of Field 1 dugout, which was damaged beyond repair over the winter. Expected completion – June 2017
- Large scale drainage project for Fields 7, 8, and 9, which will greatly reduce or eliminate ponding on those fields (and will assist with ponding on Fields 2 and 3 as well.) Expected completion – Fall 2017
Lion’s Park is privately owned and operated by the Zionsville Lion’s Club and therefore does not receive any funding from Zionsville or Boone County. All softball and baseball related activities and associated expenses are funded solely by Zionsville Little League. In addition to player fees and the generous support of our boosters and business sponsors, it is necessary to raise additional funds to maintain and improve the Lion’s Park facilities.
In place of a player-involved fundraiser, this year, we are asking community members to make a tax-deductible contribution directly to the league via PayPal or by mail at the addresses below. Thank you for considering a donation of $50, $100, or more to help us meet our goal, which will be tracked on banners around the park.
Thank you for your generosity!

About the projects
Drainage project: Over time the existing drainage tiles at Lions Park have filled and no longer serve their purpose. This leads to water collecting in certain areas of the park after heavy rains, predominantly around Fields 7, 8, and 9. It also prevents those areas from draining quickly after flooding events. ZLL, in coordination with the Lions Club will be implementing a new drainage project to move water away from the park quickly, and to reduce the amount of time standing water exists at the park.
