Pompano Beach, Florida – On September 20th, city officials will declare the Youth Sports Complex open. This facility is a component of the G.O. Pompano! initiative and is located at 700 NE 10 Street. The complex features a 4,000-square-foot building that houses a concession space, an office area, and restrooms.
There are four new fields in the complex suitable for sports such as soccer, lacrosse, and flag football. Two primary fields with advanced sports lighting and synthetic turf are located on the park’s eastern side. Additionally, there are two smaller fields, intended for younger participants, that are covered in Bermuda grass.
The decision to construct rectangular fields was in response to community requests for more soccer amenities. Hence, city officials integrated this need into the General Obligation (GO) Bond plan. This new addition complements the existing Four Fields Complex on NE 10th Street and also offers parking for the historical Sample-McDougald House, constructed in 1916.
Voters approved the G.O. Pompano! initiative in 2018. It allocated $181 million for enhancements in infrastructure, public safety, and the overall quality of life in Pompano Beach. Thanks to this bond, improvements have been made to local roadways, bridges, and essential facilities, including police and fire stations.
The introduction of the Youth Sports Complex is a testament to the effective execution of the G.O. Pompano! plan. It has modernized previous parks and playgrounds, elevating the living standards for the residents of Pompano Beach.
