TEMPLE, TX — A state-of-the-art park complex to play and watch sports is coming to Temple.

The recreational complex is expected to be an economic generator. It will also serve as a catalyst for sports tourism.

Construction on the complex began in 2018 and will be open this fall. It is consisted of approximately 260-acres. It is in the west central area of Temple.

The complex will host a variety of sports including: soccer, softball, tennis, lacrosse, rugby, ultimate Frisbee and flag football.
