Cedar Point is about to get sporty. The Sandusky, Ohio-based amusement park will begin construction on its new Cedar Point Sports Center this Friday.
Phase one of the development project, located on outside the park on Cleveland Road in Sandusky, will include an outdoor sporting facility called Sports Force Parks bringing together nine multi-purpose, synthetic turf fields, four NCAA regulation baseball fields, a championship baseball and softball stadium, eight NCAA regulation soccer and lacrosse fields, sport-specific training areas and an ADA-accessible community-use field.
The Cedar Point Sports Center, managed by Sports Force Parks, will also offer a “great lawn” and promenade with miniature golf, a ropes adventure course, a bungee trampoline challenge, a playground and food and beverages.
“Sports Force Parks at Cedar Point Sports Center will be a world-class destination for sports-focused families," said Jim Arnold, director of Business Development for The Sports Force & Fields, Inc., in a news release. "Our mission to combine sports, family and fun will bring young athletes and their families from across the country and provide them with the opportunity to combine a sports tournament with a family vacation.”
Phase two of the project’s development will include adding bike trails along the waterfront along with spots to take in the views of Lake Erie and Cedar Point.
Construction on Sports Force Parks at Cedar Point Sports Center will begin at a groundbreaking ceremony at 2 p.m. Friday.
The park expects construction to be complete in the fall of 2016 with the Sports Center opening in the spring of 2017.
