March is rapidly approaching and with it baseball season. Go Cards!!! On the local scene, the City of Edwardsville recently announced the grand opening date for the new $13M Plummer Family Sports Park. The ceremony will take place at the grand pavilion at 4 p.m. Friday, March 27th.
The Plummer Family Sports Park is located at 7757 Goshen Road in Edwardsville, IL and will encompass 83-acres of softball, baseball and soccer fields as well as numerous pickleball courts and community park space. All of this right next door to the new 95-acre Pin Oak Plaza development that includes a new Hilton Garden Inn and Travel Plaza among others yet to be announced…
Hats off to the City of Edwardsville, Glen Carbon, Maryville, Troy, Pin Oak Township, Madison County, the State of Illinois and the myriad of other talent involved in bringing this world-class sports facility and the adjacent Pin Oak Plaza amenities to fruition. Both development are a great example of quality, planned economic development and involve significant job creation, sales tax generation and complimentary demand growth at the I-55 and IL 143 Interchange.
