After millions of taxpayer dollars spent on repairs, a town-owned sports facility re-opens this weekend with a new name and a new operator.

Gilbert Parks and Recreation is now managing the facility renamed Cactus Yards. The town in 2017 severed all ties with former operator Big League Dreams on the grounds it failed to maintain the park leading to more needed repairs. The two sides were still embroiled in a lawsuit.

The town is preparing a big celebration next Saturday to mark the reopening of the venue.

“We anticipate 3,000 to 5,000 people over the course of the opening-day ceremonies,” said Robert Carmona, Parks and Recreation director.
