A ribbon-cutting ceremony marking the completion of four artificial turf soccer fields at Indian Springs Sports Complex, 13600 S 145th E. Ave., will be held Wednesday, Feb. 15, at 1 p.m.

The new turf fields are located on the southwest portion of the complex and were paid for by the 2018 General Obligation Bond.

The project converted four full-sized soccer fields from natural grass to artificial turf and included earthwork, drainage, storm sewer installation, concrete work, and sod.

Broken Arrow City Manager Michael Spurgeon thanked voters for approving the turf fields as a part of the 2018 General Obligation Bond package.

“These fields will set a standard for the region, and Indian Springs will be the go-to destination for soccer in the area,” Spurgeon said. “I am thankful our citizens see the importance of prioritizing the city’s parks with these types of improvements, which enhance the quality of life in our fast-growing community.”

Indian Springs Sports Complex is one of the most popular sporting destinations in the area for local teams and tournament play, with more than 60,000 people visiting the park for soccer games last year. It is a 234-acre park in southern Broken Arrow adjacent to the Arkansas River.

Indian Springs Sports Complex has 24 soccer fields, two adult softball fields, 16 lighted baseball fields, concessions, picnic shelters, and parking.

“The four new turf fields are an exciting addition to Indian Springs Sports Complex,” City of Broken Arrow Parks and Recreation Director Matt Hendren said. “I am very thankful for the citizens of Broken Arrow and members of the Broken Arrow Soccer Club that made these turf fields a reality.”

The benefits of turf fields include increased playing time, reduced water consumption, and lower maintenance costs. The contract was awarded to RGroup (dba United Turf and Track) at the cost of $2,533,685.
