The Douglas Coffee County Parks and Recreation Department will have an item listed for the upcoming SPLOST referendum. With the help of SPLOST funds, the Recreation Department hopes to build a sports complex that will benefit Douglas and Coffee County youth.
“For years, citizens of Coffee County and Douglas have asked for a sports complex to be built that can hold all activities for the youth in our area,” says Stevie Young, Parks and Recreation Director. “With additional funding from SPLOST we hope to make this complex a reality for our citizens.”
The Athletic Sports Complex will be built at JC Adams Municipal Park. Already located at the park are 3 softball fields (Huckaby Softball Complex), soccer field, 2 fish ponds, park shelter and playground. In addition to renovations and repairs to the existing areas, Phase I plans include adding 3 football fields, 4 - 200’ baseball/softball fields, batting and pitching cage, concession stand, bleachers, scoreboards, lighting, a playground, a ½ mile paved walking trail, additional paved parking lots, and an asphalt roundabout.
