Ladd Peebles Stadium
Ladd Stadium has a long tradition of hosting the Senior Bowl and the GMAC. During the weekend there are tents set up and parties held on the east side where the parking bays appear to be much wider in order to accommodate the activities. This Tricentennial project was $3,015,823 in improvements. Michael C. Dow, Mayor and Council person Clinton Johnson in District 3 are credited on the Capital Improvement Project sign. In meeting with Gary Tillman, P.E., he spoke about the unique drainage layout which allowed for two overflow detention basins on the SE and SW corners of the property. There is only one to two feet of elevation on this 33 acre site. Stormwater drains off the asphalt onto the Grasspave2 area, then the overflow is collected in storm channels with catch basins on the south end which are piped to the back of the property and drained to the detention areas.
