Although rains have impeded the quick completion of the rising Panama City Beach Sports Park and Stadium Complex, the Tourist Development Council (TDC) has responded.
The group has increased the construction of roads in the area to facilitate the rapid completion of the new sports complex.
Also, maintenance and emergency vehicles will be able to arrive in the locale fast. The new Panama City Beach sports complex is reported to be on time for its opening on the first week of July.
Bay County Commissioner and TDC member, Philip Griffitts, described the Panama City Beach Sports Park and Stadium Complex as an avant-garde collaboration between the TDC, the Saint Joe Company, and the Florida Department of Transportation.
In addition, the Bay District Schools, the City of Panama City Beach, and the Bay County Commission are also involved in the project, he mentioned.
Griffitts cited that the new enterprise will help in boosting the tourism industry in Bay County, Florida. It will help in the diversification of the tourism economy, he added.
Panama City Beach Sports Park and Stadium Complex is a result of the requirement for rectangular fields, according to a market study between 2008 and 2013.
The construction of the facility commenced in 2015. Bay County approved the bidding, and the ceremonial groundbreaking for the sports park was held in June 2018.
Panama City Beach is a well-known destination for youth sporting activities. The year-round destination is situated on a 210-acre land on the eastern portion of Panama City Beach in Bay County, Florida within the vicinity of the Breakfast Point development.
The new sports complex is a creative location and an amalgamation of innovative amateur athletic grounds and top-notch visitor amenities, setting the bar for sports complexes in the nation.
A public-private project, it is expected to optimize the appeal of the location as a year-round sports tournament venue.
‘Playcation’ will be among the primary reasons why families will choose the new Panama City Beach sports complex as a destination for sports and vacation opportunities.
The facility will enable guests to enjoy various sports like football, soccer, lacrosse, rugby, baseball, and softball.
The Panama City Beach sports complex will comprise dedicated tournament buildings, more than 1,000 parking spots, and concession stands.
Two 1,500-seater stadium championship fields and collegiate-sized softball and baseball fields are also among the sports park’s features.
