New Sunnyside soccer field named Christina Knoth Park

SUNNYSIDE, Wash. -- A name has been chosen for the soccer field near the Law and Justice Center in Sunnyside. City Council unanimously voted to name it Christina Knoth Park.

Knoth was a Sunnyside resident who mentored young people and helped them stay out of trouble. She organized fundraisers, food drives and book drives. Knoth lost her battle to a lung disease last year.

The park should be completed this summer.
