Only June 22nd, at the first annual Movie Night at Field of Dreams, concept renderings were revealed to the public for the first time. Robert William Hannon Architect PLLC has been working with the non-profit organization to develop a design for a new pavilion, replacing the 23 year old existing wood stage.
The goal of the design was to generate a contemporary facility that will esthetically fit within the naturally wooded site and be resistant to potential vandalism. The Pavilion will be fully handicap accessible, an important feature the existing stage is lacking. The proposed design includes a roof to protect equipment and performers in the case of threatening weather conditions. In 2015, thirty percent of the concerts from the Summer Concert Series were cancelled due to inclement weather.
The Field of Dreams board is now actively in the fundraising stage. To supplement current reserves, the board will be applying for grants and doing community outreach activities in the coming months.
Field of Dreams is a community park and playground located on Geremonty Drive in Salem, NH. There is a playground with a dedicated toddler area, as well as areas for older children. Other features of the park include a newly appointed fitness trail, walking/hiking trails, a volleyball court, picnic areas, and a stage for performances. Field of Dreams also hosts the weekly Summer Concert Series and other community events throughout the year. The park can be rented for parties and events. More information about the park can be found on the official website, www.fieldofdreamsnh.org.
