On Wednesday, Dec. 21, the City of Portland will start construction on the new sports amenities at Municipal Park (known locally as 13-Acre Park), located at 1815 Memorial Parkway, and the Sports Complex on Buddy Ganem Drive. Both projects are expected to be complete by late summer 2017. Construction will necessitate closing these parks to the public. Details on the Spring 2017 league seasons is forthcoming. During construction, league play will be relocated to temporary facilities at other City parks in Portland. Improvements to Portland’s Municipal Park include five baseball fields, which will also be suitable for softball and soccer play; a covered playground with splash pad, a covered basketball court, a walking/jogging track and covered fitness station, concession areas, and shade structures. The fields feature artificial turf, dugouts, sports lighting, covered spectator seating, dual-lane batting cages, and scoreboards. Additional amenities at Municipal Park include a picnic area with grills and additional parking. Located off Buddy Ganem Drive, the Sports Complex project includes four softball fields that will also be suitable for baseball and soccer, a youth football field that can double as a UIL soccer field, a multi-purpose turf field, concession areas, a playground with splash pad, shade structures, and a picnic area with grills. The artificial-turf fields will feature sports lighting, covered spectator seating, scoreboards, and dual-lane batting cages and dugouts on the softball fields.
