The new Mount Pleasant Sports Complex is on track to be open in September, which is later than originally anticipated due to construction issues being addressed by the contractor. Also, the soccer turf seed has been planted and needs time to become established before league play begins.
“We remain excited about the Sports Complex and thank everyone who has been involved in bringing it to reality. It’s a big project, and we look forward to celebrating its Grand Opening in September with the community,” said City Manager Ed Thatcher. “This is a destination facility that will raise the level of expectation of sports fields in our region.”
The 145-acre property is located in the northeast corner of Business 271 and CR 1314 and boasts 45 acres of amenities including lighted soccer fields, an innovative playground and sprayground, a beautiful concession area overlooking a pond, open green space and plenty of trails for walking and jogging.
In addition to these amenities, the sports complex features unique and varied material types including synthetic turf, engineered wood fiber, a durable splash deck, both concrete and decomposed granite trails, sports grass seeding and native grass seeding.
Grand Opening festivities including a ribbon cutting, the kick-off of the fall soccer season, live music and complimentary treats like hot dogs, ice cream and snow cones is planned for Thursday, September 9, 6 to 9 p.m.
