Scope of Work: This 57-acre abandoned airfield on Lake Erie was transformed into a world-class 10-field multi-sport tournament complex. From concept stage through construction and operations, the project was led by four partner companies: The Sports Force (design), Sports Fields, Inc. (general contractor & field builder), Sports Force Parks (management), and FIELDS Maintenance. The complex has ten high-level competition synthetic turf fields: 1 championship soccer field, 1 championship baseball/softball field, 1 adaptive field, and 7 multi-sport fields for baseball/softball and soccer/lacrosse. The multi-use layouts allow the park to be utilized as 4 NCAA regulation baseball fields, 8 NCAA regulation soccer/lacrosse fields (or 16 youth soccer fields), and 11 youth baseball/softball fields.
The park entrance clubhouse has office and meeting space, restrooms, and trainers’ room / first aid. Park amenities include the sports & vendor village, 18-hole mini-golf course, ropes course, bungee trampoline, playgrounds, picnic areas, and a central food court adjacent to the great lawn. Other elements constructed by FIELDS include sports field lighting, dugouts, bullpens, batting cages, scorer’s boxes, fencing and backstops, foul poles, bleachers, concrete flatwork, landscape, and irrigation.
