As Northern Colorado continues to boom, we continue to see new businesses, attractions, and developments. The latest big plans for our area will bring the "world's largest sports park" to NoCo.
Plans for a $225 million, 65-field sports park, complete with a 10,000 stadium were unveiled at a press conference Tuesday morning.
The complex is on a 413-acre site at the intersection of Colorado Highway 257 and Weld County Road 74, and will feature five high school/college-size baseball fields, 10 youth fields, 16 tournament baseball and 16 tournament softball fields, four T-ball fields and 12 multi-use fields. The multi-use fields can be used for soccer, lacrosse and football. All fields will feature artificial turf.
The complex will include an indoor training facility that could be utilized year-round.
There are also plans for an athlete’s campus with dorms where all visiting teams will stay. Retail shops, restaurants and hotels are in the long-term planning goals for the site as well.
The project is expected to start construction between Sept. 1 and Oct. 1 this year, with the completion of the first phase in the fall of 2018, which will include the indoor training facility geared to baseball and softball. The final phase is expected to be completed in the spring of 2019.
