Crown Point Sportsplex Undergoing Improvement Project

In Crown Point, the city says it has broken ground on an improvement project on the east side of the Crown Point Sportsplex. The project totaling roughly $977,000 will replace the existing infields on six softball fields with turf, a news release said. The project includes the turf infields, as well as drainage and infrastructure to support the turf. Work is being performed by Austgen Equipment. Work began in December 2022 and is ongoing. The city said it expects the work to be complete in time for this year’s softball and baseball seasons.
“The City of Crown Point continues to make improvements to our 95-acre destination Sportsplex, which draws in tens-of-thousands of athletes and visitors annually,” said Crown Point Mayor Pete Land. “The new field upgrades will keep our facility at the forefront of regional complexes and continue to make Crown Point a destination for youth and adult sports.”
