Pelican Park in Carencro will be getting a major facelift.

The Carencro City Council has approved a little over a half a million dollars to add more artificial turf to the park along with renovate the dugouts at the park.

Numerous regional and national softball tournaments are held at Pelican Park.

While the four diamonds are mostly turfed, the project would add new artificial turf to other areas.

Recreation Commission Chairman Murray Conque says the improvements will help to reduce the costs of maintenance.
