EL PASO - Ground has broken on El Paso County Sportspark’s $7 million renovation. The first phase of construction includes an administrative and ticket booth building, concession building and batting cages, as well as upgrades to the T-ball fields and the park's infrastructure.
A new clubhouse, which will include a pro shop, restaurant, family restrooms and concession area, will come in the second phase. The four fields around the clubhouse will receive upgrades.
The $7 million price tag is less than the $9.5 million that the county was going to pay Big League Dreams to build and operate the park in 2006. The park first opened as Champions Sportsplex in 1986.
T-ball fields and two of the eastern baseball fields should be ready for play in March 2013. The new park is expected to be fully completed in September 2013 and will serve 3,000 players per year.
