The new GREATT multi-sport complex is designed to include a double pad ice rink arena, four diamond baseball park with artificial turf infields, ten natural and artificial soccer/lacrosse/football fields, four seasons indoor turfed training dome, and a four court professional basketball/volleyball gymnasium.
We continue to work with GREATT to complete the sale of the SPORTS PARK. We are still taking reservations for field and court rentals!
The nonprofit Greater Regional Erie Athletic Team Training wants to buy and renovate Family First Sports Park with $16 million; $8 million in grants, the state’s Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP) and another $8 million in public money. The General Assembly must first vote to preauthorize an RACP request for Gov. Tom Wolf to consider it.
RACP funds are for the acquisition and construction of regional economic, cultural, civic, recreational and historical improvement projects.
