Community members in Central Oregon unite to establish a state-of-the-art multi-sport facility

The Central Oregon Sportsplex Alliance is a group of community members, businesses, sports teams, and partners who are dedicated to improving the sports facilities in the region. Their vision is to develop a multi-sport facility with multiple turf fields for soccer, lacrosse, rugby, baseball, and softball. Additionally, they aim to have indoor multi-use turf fields, ice sports development areas, and potentially commercial sports, retail, hotel, and RV park amenities.

The CO Sportsplex Alliance also wants to establish scholarship funds to ensure that all youth in Central Oregon have access to top-notch facilities, leagues and training opportunities. They believe that every child should have the opportunity to participate in sports without barriers. Derek Berry presented their plan to the Bend Park and Rec Board during a meeting. He emphasized that this project was a significant endeavor that could be realized with sufficient support.

Julie Brown from Bend Parks & Rec expressed the organization’s dedication to providing recreational spaces within the community. She highlighted the potential for partnerships with CO Sportsplex Alliance to enhance recreational opportunities. The board expressed interest in exploring their concept further.

The preferred location for CO Sportsplex Alliance is Redmond at the Fairgrounds and Expo Center. Although feasibility studies need to be completed first and substantial funding required including private donations and public partnerships many see value in investing parks and sports facilities for community benefits once fundraising efforts commence.
