Just three weeks after announcement of a $250-million sports and entertainment complex in southeast Mesa, groundbreaking was held Friday for Legacy Sports Park.
Work on the 320-acre project will begin next week at the former General Motors Proving Ground. The projected opening for what could be the western U.S. version of ESPN Wide World of Sports in Orlando, Florida, is January 2022.
That’s an aggressive construction timetable for a drawing board that includes 24 soccer fields (one in a multi-purpose stadium), eight baseball/softball fields (one with a stadium), 20 sand volleyball courts, 40 pickleball courts, an indoor multi-sports building with 62 volleyball courts, 16 basketball courts, an Esports arena and a 50-acre area with a multi-purpose outdoor amphitheater for concerts and other events.
