The city of Hutto is nearing completion on three new ballfields off Mager Lane. The Mager Fields Project is the second parks project from Hutto’s 2018 bond election, following the reopening of Hutto Community Park in October 2019. Improvements are expected to cost approximately $1 million and will primarily be used by the Hutto Youth Baseball and Softball Association, Hutto Executive Communications Director Donna Simmons said in a Feb. 4 email.
The November 2018 bond election earmarked $50 million for renovations on existing parks and recreation facilities; extensions of roadways, trails, parking and drainage improvements; purchase of right of way and similar infrastructure; and the construction of and equipment for a recreation center and athletic fields.
Mager Fields is located at 100 Mager Lane, adjacent to Hutto Elementary School. When the facilities are not in use by the city’s youth sports league, they will be available to the public with advanced reservation, Simmons said.
Upgrades include complete renovations to the city’s baseball and softball fields as well as the addition of a T-ball field, Simmons said. All three fields are expected to be completed in late March.
