Meeting the Needs:
Athletics Program Expansion: The Town’s athletic fields are scheduled to capacity, resulting in waiting lists for most youth and many adult athletic programs. There is no ability to add new programs such as lacrosse or partner with local private sports programs or schools to provide field space. The fields built at Pleasant Park will allow for the expansion of softball, baseball, tennis, soccer, and lacrosse programs.
Tournament Hosting: Our residents travel all over the state to participate in youth athletic tournaments. Pleasant Park is envisioned as a tournament facility, allowing Apex athletes to stay and play.
