The Sportsplex first debuted in 2013 featuring five multi-purpose fields, playground equipment and shelter. This facility will serve as host to a variety of weekend tournaments - soccer, rugby, lacrosse, football, field hockey, etc. It will also be available for weekday practices and league play for local teams and organizations.
Work started in June 2015 on the second phase of the project, with plans to add six more fields and a championship field hosting up to 2,700 spectators, walking trails, additional shelters, and more. Construction of the second phashe should be complete by late 2016.
