Future Parking Lot & Soccer Fields

This picture is an overview of the biggest area of development to Northeast.
*  There will be a new 100 spot asphalt parking lot located in the north west corner of the park across from Pizza Hut Field.  The entrance and exit to this new parking lot will be along Highway 78.
*There will also be ornamental fencing installed the entire length of Northeast Park along Highway 78.
*From the parking lot there will be a walkway to Pizza Hut Field and access to many new amenities to be offered.
*This overview also shows the availability of space to house a regulation size competitive soccer field, 2 B-League size fields and 2 A-League size fields. This will allow for the current soccer fields to be moved off of the baseball diamonds.
*The entire area pictured above will be re-graded and proper drainage will be installed to help eliminate standing water.

      The project is still in the hands of Design Perspectives as no general contractor has been hired yet. No bids are available at this time but notice will be given as soon as bids for the project are released to us. Thank you for your continued interest in the project.
