Fiesta Sports Park, 936 S. Extension Road, was the site of a grand opening ceremony Nov. 29.
“Youth sports fields are always in short supply,” Mesa Parks, Recreation and Community Facilities Director Marc Heirshberg said in a press release. “When we were putting together the proposal for the Parks Bond Project, one of the main goals was to provide more fields for our community.”
Fiesta Sports Park includes four new ball fields for youth baseball and softball and a multi-use field with bleachers. The youth ballfields are in a quad layout with Cubs-branded signage and scoreboard, centralized concession and restroom area. The ball field lights are lit by LED sports lights, which use less energy and light spill from traditional lighting. The 17-acre park also includes a new playground with shade covering and enlarged parking lot.
