The City plans to construct a full-size synthetic turf multi-purpose field with lines for soccer, baseball, softball, and lacrosse. The field will be located near the intersection of Victoria Way and Adrian Street. A restroom facility for the park will be a part of a future phase of construction in the park. The field project is funded from the remaining site development money that was transferred by the Housing and Redevelopment Authority (HRA) to Parks and Recreation in 2019 and funds from the Outdoor Recreation Grant program (DNR).
The Victoria Park Master Plan process led to the design of a new 40.4 acre park for the West 7th Street neighborhood and provided critical connections to the Mississippi River, Sam Morgan Regional Trail, and Crosby Regional Park. The Master Plan for Victoria Park envisioned a multi-use synthetic turf field at the north end of the park. High-quality and durable sports fields are needed citywide and this will bring that opportunity to Victoria Park and the surrounding community.
