Description: The Dennis Alec Memorial Ball Field is located on the Woyenne Reserve in Burns Lake, BC, home of the Lake Babine Nation. The Ball Field was built for the community in 1994 by local community members and includes a fence, bleachers, dugouts, concession, announcer's booth, and bathrooms. Over time the ball field has deteriorated and become an unsafe environment for youth and community members. NKDF approved an amount of $25,510 to assist with upgrading the ball field to increase usability and make it a safer facility including the construction of a concession stand and bathrooms, bleachers, and an announcer's booth.
