The former Lake Charles Boston High School Football Stadium, located at 1201 1st Avenue, is set to be renovated over the next six to eight months. On Tues., Dec. 22 at 10 a.m., Lake Charles Ward 3 Recreation will host a groundbreaking ceremony for the Ward 3 Football Stadium.

Kip Texada, executive director for Ward 3 said his organization’s mission is to "establish, acquire, construct, improve, extend, and maintain a recreational system and facilities for the benefit of all citizens.” 

The Ward 3 stadium now hosts football games for high school, junior high school, and recreational football teams throughout the area.

"The renovations are funded in part by the State of Louisiana through its Capital Outlay program.” Sen. Ronnie Johns, Speaker of the House of Representatives Chuck Kleckley, and Rep. A.B. Franklin helped secure the funds and said they would attend the groundbreaking, said Texada.
