March 1st is the scheduled opening date for the new multimillion dollar park and sports complex being built on Robert Edge Parkway off SC 31 in North Myrtle Beach. Located on city owned land west of the IntraCoastal Waterway the spacious complex encompasses a total of 145 acres. There will be a 12 acre area of lawn at the center of the park known as The Meadow. With more than 550 parking spaces available for attendees the Sports Complex is promising to be a very popular venue for all types of team sports.
The park includes such features as a 2,300 square foot Veteran’s Plaza with seating, a 63’ x 30’ outdoor amphitheater designed to accommodate large performances, a 27-acre lake, and a privately operated Zip Line. There will be 6 baseball/softball fields, 8 soccer/lacrosse fields, 8 batting cages, 3 miles of walking trails, Waggin Tails dog parks, 6 picnic shelters, 3 playgrounds and a nature preserve. All sports fields are well lit for night play.
The event calendar for the sports complex is filling up fast with such events as softball spring classics, lacrosse spring training, ultimate Frisbee, IQA World Cup VII, baseball spring classic, soccer training and games. The official Grand Opening for the sports complex is slated for Saturday, April 5, 2014 and the public is invited to attend this exciting event. North Myrtle Beach Parks and Recreation will be sponsoring the event.
The National Collegiate Sports Invitational, which lasts three weeks and is expected to bring 60 softball and 24 baseball teams to the beach, will christen the complex in March.
