Friends of Rice Field supporters are advocating for a vibrant future for Beaverdale at the recreational field located across the street from our only elementary/middle (private) school in Beaverdale located in the City's designated protected residential corridor. We want to continue to allow Beaverdale to be a welcoming place for young families to move to and to stay throughout their elementary and middle school years.

One graded recreational playing field in Beaverdale: Rice Field.*
*Prospect Park recreational field was paved for DMPS use,
A deal was made between the City and DMPS for which Rice Field was graded at an expense of upward to $200,000 in exchange for the loss of the recreational field at Prospect Park.
When Rice Field was sold to Rice Partners for development, all recreational needs from Rice Field were to be moved to Hoover H.S. Athletic Field.
Hoover can not meet the recreational demands coming from Rice Field.
