The grand re-opening of Granite Park got a special blessing Saturday.

A couple dozen people came out to the park this morning for a prayer breakfast. They got a sneak peek at the refurbished fields, which have artificial turf infields and grass in the outfield.

And lucky for kids, it looks like the turf may save them from a few knee scrapes.

The Fenway Park-lookalike and the other fields still have a ways to go, but they're scheduled to open next weekend.

Developer Terrance Frazier invested about $1.5 million in updating the park. The city is leasing it and will spend $150,000 a year to fund Granite Park programs.
