New Sports Complex Slated for North Myrtle Beach
Soon the city of North Myrtle Beach will be welcoming it newest attraction! The brand-new park and sports complex will be constructed on 160 acres of land west of the waterway. The park will be home to a 2,300-square-foot Veteran’s Plaza, an outdoor amphitheater with a huge front lawn, a 27-acre lake, six baseball/softball fields, up to eight soccer/football/lacrosse fields, playgrounds, a dog park, picnic shelters, and a zip line that runs approximately 4,500 feet long over the newly designed architecture. The $15 million dollar complex is expected to generate more than $14 million in revenue alone in 2014 alone. Located just off Robert Edge Parkway just off of S.C. 31, bookings for the complex are already way ahead of the originally scheduled estimates and things seem to be looking great already even though the facility is not scheduled to open until early March 2014. It looks like the city is well on its way to filling the 550 spaces available for parking at the city’s complex. The complex has already booked at least 46 events equaling more than 19,000 participants who have all signed up to compete next year. The first of the expected events will be The National Collegiate Sports Invitational, which is expected to bring close to 24 baseball teams and 60 softball teams to the area, and will last for approximately three weeks. The officials of the city’s Parks & Recreational Department is excited about the new addition to the city and all of the upcoming events because they are certain that the economy will receive the much needed boost that the North Myrtle Beach Park and Sports Complex will provide.
