Landons Miracle Field Grand Opening
August 17 @ 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm
The Landon’s Legacy Foundation was born after Landon Smith’s passing in order to keep his amazing spirit alive in our community. In 2013, Marcie Smith approached the City of Billings with the idea of building a Miracle Field at Poly Vista Park.
After years of planning, collaboration, and fundraising, the Landon’s Legacy Foundation and Billings Parks and Recreation are proud to announce the Grand Opening of Landon’s Miracle Field, Billings’ first Miracle League Baseball Field! This special needs baseball field is built with custom designed rubberized turf field that accommodates wheelchairs and other adaptive equipment. This phase of development has also provided important park improvements, laying the groundwork for future fully accessible park features. Most notably, it has created the opportunity to provide programming to serve children and adults who suffer from any physical or mental disabilities which excludes them from other baseball leagues.
The impacts this project to the Billings Community and surrounding area cannot be understated and we believe that an occasion as momentous as this deserves a proper celebration! The Poly Vista Miracle Field grand opening represents the culmination of 9 years of hard work and perseverance, and is the realization of a dream come to reality.
The Grand Opening will take place on Wednesday, August 17th at 5:00pm. We expect this event to have a large showing of public support. As the grand opening committee works towards finalizing plans for this event, we will look to provide fun activities for the whole family, including a live band, free ice cream, food trucks, a dunk tank, photo booth, mascots, on-field activities and more!
