Stadium Improvements

Construction has started on installation of a new turf field and plaza stadium entrance. The Wilson Pool and school buildings will be open this summer, but parking will be limited in order to allow for construction access and the track and field are closed for the summer. Click here for more details.

For a limited time, you can still order a customized brick to be installed in the new plaza. Order yours now with a personalized message to the Wilson Community!
