On June 16th, Edwardsville city officials along with numerous local sports teams, citizens, other dignitaries and member of the press, gathered on the site of the new Plummer Family Sports Park to officially break ground on the 78+ acre development. World-class athletic facilities, all-access ball fields, public playgrounds and a multi-use concession/guest services facility are all planned. The Park will be located directly adjacent to and border Pangea Development’s newest 95+ acre commercial development, Pin Oak Plaza.
Mayor Patton thanked several prominent donors to the Park, including J.F. Electric, The Bank of Springfield, and the Ebbets Fields Home Owners Association. The Mayor also spoke about the “Better Place to Play Campaign” that continues to be a critical source of local donations and grant funds for the Plummer Family Sports Park and beyond.
When complete, the Plummer Family Sports Park will play host to regular community groups and sports leagues as well as regional and national tournaments that City officials project will bring additional tourism revenue to the City. Play ball!!!!
