(Appleton, WI) A new sport facility is on its way for the Fox Valley. Investors and community supporters helped break ground on Lake Park Sportzone on Lake Park road in the Village of Harrison. The 32,000 sq. ft. athletic facility will house basketball and volleyball courts for public and tournament use and much more.

“We have really been looking forward to getting this project underway,” stated owner, Jeff Pistone. “It’s taken a lot of time and planning to get to this point and now that the reality is here, it’s exciting.”

Hoffman Planning, Design & Construction, Inc. has been selected as the firm to design and construct the $4 million project. “We are proud to be a part of a local project that will be such a positive addition to the community,” said Sam Statz, director of construction services for Hoffman.

The facility will boast 28 foot ceilings and all hardwood court surfaces that feature three basketball courts and six volleyball courts. “When it’s complete, the complex will be the largest all hardwood court facility in Northeast Wisconsin,” Pistone said. “It will be an ideal setting for teams to practice and to hold tournaments.”

In addition, the complex will include batting/pitching tunnels, laser tag, an in-ground trampoline as well as a café and rental space for parties. “Although we hope to bring in a lot of tournament traffic to the Valley, we are open to the public to use as well,” Pistone said. “I think this is going to really fill a need in our area.”

The Lake Park Sportzone is expected to be completed by early 2015.
