MARION - A popular attraction in Marion will now look a little brighter thanks to new LED lighting installed today.

Rent One Park has had the same lighting since the venue first opened in Marion in 2007.

Originally designed for baseball games, the new lighting installed will allow for broader coverage for the variety of new events being held now that Rent One Park is under new ownership.

The cost of the upgrades is nearly $1 million. This comes after a new video screen was also installed at the ballpark prior to the folding of the Southern Illinois Miners baseball team.

Different sports will also be able to play at night thanks to the upgrades, allowing for a multi-use venue.
