Officials Break Ground for the New Party Patio at Werner Park

Werner Park Party PatioThe official ground breaking ceremony took place on September 30 for the new Party Patio at Werner Park.  The patio located in the outfield concourse will feature Watkins product and is sponsored by Sun Valley Landscaping.  The new area will offer fans the opportunity to enjoy the game as if they’re in their own backyard.

The patio will have a three-burner gas fire pit with lounge seating, high-top table seating and space for up to 100 guests.

The area is raised a foot above the regular concourse and higher toward the back to provide a clear view of the ballpark, said Susan Drey, the project’s designer from Sun Valley Landscaping.

The area will be available for rent during games and other events.

Check out the new party patio at the Storm Chasers first home game in 2016.

Watkins and JEM Restoration Team Up on 2015 Caniglia Field Project

UNO 216The UNO Athletic Department opened Caniglia Field for soccer action in 2013.  The conversion from a football stadium to a soccer stadium propelled it to one of the best on-campus soccer-specific stadiums in the country.  UNO’s commitment to making it a state-of-the-art facility continued this summer as they recently completed a remodel project that consisted of new ADA ramps, a water proof deck coating, expansion joints, hand rails, and new seats and bleachers.

UNO 208Dean Neesen, owner of JEM Restoration, tasked Watkins with finding product partners for the project that was under a very strict time line of only 30 working days and required extensive testing.  Watkins partnered with BASF and WillSeal to meet the project demands.  Working with BASF and WillSeal, JEM Restoration installed a new BASF water proof deck coating and WillSeal expansion joints.  The 30,000 Sq. Ft. project was completed on time and ready for the opening contest of 2015 on August 15.
