TOWN OF ORCHARD PARK SPORTS COMPLEX
A four- field sports complex has been developed by the Town of Orchard Park. In the fall of 2007, the town dedicated the new pavillion. The Soccer club continues to work with the town to enhance the facility. Please help us support this effort. Details are contained below.
BACKGROUND OF THE TOWN OF ORCHARD PARK SPORTS COMPLEX
Prior to the Sports Complex, the Orchard Park Soccer Club utilized fields at the local schools and Erie Community College for its house and travel leagues. Space was limited and the Town Recreational Board found that additional facilities were needed to support the growing interest in soccer. During the same period, the Town of Orchard Park acquired 56 acres of land on Milestrip Road. Eighteen acres of this land has been dedicated to the sports complex. The Town of Orchard Park has provided and continues to provide the funds necessary to create and maintain 4 soccer fields as well as the necessary infrastructure (parking lots, landscaping, fencing, etc). The fields are among the best in WNY. The predominant use of the fields is for the burgeoning sport of soccer, but the complex may also be utilized for other community programs including lacrosse and football.
The Orchard Park Soccer Club consists of more than 1000 children in its house program and 300 children in its travel leagues. The town granted the OPSC permission to raise funds for the complex to provide further enhancements for the recreational area. Amenities such as concessions, restrooms and storage have been built, again with the support of the Town of Orchard Park. In return for corporate sponsorships, companies will be able to reach audiences that utilize the complex for leisure and games. Field rights, Internet advertising and print media are available, as well as opportunities to purchase equipment needs.
