A public recreation facility with many soccer field and a football field built around walking trails, sheltered picnic tables, and a small playground. It hosts many large tournaments and serves as a great practice facility. Nice place to visit even if you are not part of a soccer event. Well maintained with plenty of parking.
This place is HUGE! Weve been to several regional lacrosse tournaments here and the only thing I find lacking every time is parking spaces. Fields are great and theres always enough space to set up lawn chairs, tents, blankets, etc. Theres also nice, generally flat walkways between fields which makes it easy if youre dragging carts full of stuff. Restrooms are generally clean. Theres plenty of trash receptacles and theyre emptied regularly. But the parking situation can be horrendous when theres a multi-state/regional tournament and then its quite a walk from where you end up parking to the field you want to go to.
It was a really nice park. The only knock was a huge shortage of parking for a complex of this size. There was additional parking half mile away. That's a long walk for a little kid right before having to play 2 hours of soccer in 95 degree weather. Luckily only 3 of them suffered heat exhaustion. I just need to remember a wagon for all the gear next time.
Clean and well organized. Very accessible from SR74
Nice parking. Clean toilets. I like that there is playground for little kids, so if you bring younger siblings here they dont need to spend all the time on the field. And very easy to find.
