The James Madison University athletic facilities on the corner of Neff Avenue and Port Republic Road in Harrisonburg were renamed Sentara Park during a brief ceremony at the park on Aug. 31.

Signage bearing the new name and the Sentara logo are displayed prominently throughout the facility, which is home to JMU men’s and women’s soccer, lacrosse, track and field and intramural sports.

“We’re excited to rename their athletic facilities Sentara Park because it illustrates Sentara Healthcare’s commitment to supporting those communities served by Sentara hospitals,” said Tom Weber, M.D., of Sentara RMH Orthopedics and Sports Medicine. Dr. Weber spoke at the renaming ceremony, along with JMU athletic director Jeff Bourne and Harrisonburg Mayor Chris Jones.
