UTICA, N.Y. – A new multi-million dollar field has been revealed at Proctor Park.

The new Sal Longo Field was named after the owner of Northern Safety, who wanted to give back to the community and allow local kids to enjoy outdoor activities.

Longo himself played in the park as a child, and donated money for the new field last summer. Work on the field began shortly afterward.

Community members stopped by the park Thursday to see the new field.

"Being in Central New York with the way that the weather is -- fall and spring. There's more opportunities for these kids to get out and play. It's pretty exciting that's why I came over to see what was going on," said Kristi Peterson, a resident of Utica.

The Proctor High School football team and Notre Dame girls’ soccer team have already used the field for practice.
