Crown Point Sportsplex getting $1 million upgrade

City of Crown Point

The Crown Point Sportsplex is getting almost a million dollars in upgrades.

Work is underway to replace the existing infields at six softball fields with turf, while adding the proper drainage and infrastructure. That means nine of the 12 fields at the Sportsplex will have turf infields when it's done.

Mayor Pete Land said in a statement that the Sportsplex "draws in tens-of-thousands of athletes and visitors annually." He says the new upgrades will keep the facility "at the forefront of regional complexes."
