Westfield to reveal ‘transformative’ changes to Grand Park



Westfield, Indiana – Officials from Westfield City are prepared to reveal the next developments for the Grand Park Sports Campus.

Tuesday at 1:00 PM, according to Mayor Andy Cook’s office, an announcement will be made regarding the “transformative changes planned for the iconic sports campus.”

The city has been soliciting and evaluating offers to sell or hire an operator for the 400-acre child sports complex for almost two years.

The estimated $85 million property is no longer being considered for sale, as the city declared earlier this year.

The Westfield Redevelopment Commission’s president, Joe Plankis, disclosed in an August meeting that three bids were still being considered.

Thirty-one soccer fields, twenty-six baseball diamonds, two administration buildings, seven concession stands, and the 378,000-square-foot Grand Park Event Center are all part of Grand Park, which opened in 2014.

New pickleball courts are also being constructed at the complex, and in January it will play host to the first-ever collegiate pickleball competition.

Every summer, Grand Park also holds a Colts training camp.

After January 1, any agreement must be authorized by the newly elected Westfield City Council.
