KANSAS CITY, Kan. - Families in downtown KCK have a new place to play.
A special ribbon cutting ceremony was held Saturday for the city’s new community athletic field. It’s located off Parallel Parkway and North Ninth Street.
The field is dedicated to long time coach Adrion Roberson.
"This is part of a dream that started back in the 80s when we were playing football back in WYCO," Roberson said. "It's just an answer to a prayer and an answer to a desperate need for something positive in our community."
The NFL Punt, Pass and Kick event and a soccer game followed the field dedication.
