Shadow Creek Ranch Sports Complex will have its grand opening April 1 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The new complex is located at 13050 Shadow Creek Parkway in Pearland.
The $10.1 million facility was included and approved in the 2007 Bond Election. Construction began initially in 2014.
The 65-acre park offers lighted softball/baseball fields, a turf field, volleyball courts, paved walking paths, covered pavilion, concessions, amphitheater and children’s playground.
Multiple tournaments and events can be held simultaneously. The size and amenities of the complex allow the city to host regional, state and national athletic competitions and tournaments for a variety of sports.
The Shadow Creek Ranch Sports Complex is a first of its kind for a sports provider for the Parks and Recreation Department and the City of Pearland.
For its grand opening, there will be a ribbon cutting, ceremonial first pitch, food trucks, moon walks and carnival games.
A short program will be held where council members and staff will address all attending. Several vendors will be present as well as a home run derby off a batting tee, according to Director of Communications Sparkle Anderson.
