A special new sports facility is being built in Elmira at McKinnon Park.
McKinnon Park, the site of a brand-new state-of-the-art horseshoes course is set for June.
The course is a collaboration of local leaders who contributed their time and effort with state and local grants, along with key sponsorship donations.
A total of $50K was granted to the park through the state, along with $20K from the city of Elmira as well as an additional $20K from Chemung County.
The new park aims to bring some of the best horseshoe players in the world to come and compete, plus, youth and local tournaments are planned.
Another highlight of the course is to potentially hold the New York State Championships, which would include several professional players in the competition.
