Flying Cloud Fields Expansion

What is happening at the southeast corner of Pioneer Trail and Mitchell Road?  That is a question I have been asked on numerous occasions over the past two months.  The answer is that this is the expansion of the Flying Cloud Fields complex.  This project adds two lacrosse/soccer fields and two baseball fields to an area that currently includes 24 soccer fields and 7 baseball fields.

Actual construction started in early April.  However, the City has been pursuing this project since 2002 and was able to fund this expansion through the 2005 park referendum.  In fact, this is the last project from that referendum.  The work here should be completed this September and will also include an access road, parking, walkways, and storm water infiltration basins.

It is on schedule and on budget to open for play in the Spring of 2013.  We are looking  forward to this new addition to our park and recreational system.
