Windsor could get the world’s largest sports park – The Denver Post
WINDSOR — Local developers announced Tuesday their intention to build a sports park in Windsor that would have no rival worldwide.
Two years from now, the proposed Rocky Mountain Sports Park will host its first baseball and softball tournaments on its 65 fields, the developers said at a press conference with Windsor officials.
“Rocky Mountain Sports Park will be a universal site that provides every athlete an opportunity to learn and play baseball and softball while gaining a broader perspective of themselves and their world,” said Shawn Logan, director of marketing.
The 620-acre complex at the northwest corner of Harmony Road and Colo. 257 would be built with all private funding, starting with an initial investment of $225 million, Logan said.
The project would have:
• 65 playing fields with artificial turf, including five for high school/college players, 10 for youths, four for T-ball, 16 for tournament baseball, 16 for tournament softball, 12 for multiple uses such as lacrosse and soccer, a 10,000-seat stadium and a “miracle field” for players with disabilities.
• A “stadium district” with restaurants and shops.
• A field house with a multipurpose field, four basketball courts, an elevated track and a workout room.
• A training facility including computerized hitting and pitching lanes, two complete infields and large meeting rooms.
• Dormitories for participating teams.
