WEST CHESTER, OH (FOX19) - A formal groundbreaking was held Wednesday at Voice of America park in West Chester for a new athletic complex.
MetroParks announced a collaboration earlier this month with The Butler County Visitors Bureau to build an athletic complex at Voice of America Park projected to be open for use by the fall of 2014. Preliminary construction for the 22 multipurpose natural grass fields began in August.
The entire project cost will be approximately $3 million by the time the 22 natural grass fields are playable in two years. Visitors will enjoy steady improvements to the complex over time as additional partners and sponsors participate in this initiative. Additionally, over the life of the complex revenue generated from field use is projected to offset the initial investment and cover operating costs.
