This 160-acre complex looks to bring fantastic recreation opportunities to the area. Six baseball/softball fields and four soccer/lacrosse fields will make it enticing to tournaments seeking a home in the area. The facility plans on marking its grand opening with Lacrosse training and tournaments planned from March on into the summer. The event garnering the most publicity is the 2014 Quidditch World Cup. With over 80 teams and 1,500 competitors expected, the Harry Potter-inspired tournament looks to be a fantastic way to celebrate the park’s opening in early April.

The 2014 Quidditch World Cup is sure to bring excitement to the North Myrtle Beach Park and Sports Complex

More than just a sports complex, the facility is designed for the outdoor enthusiast. Several walking trails will offer relaxing areas to stroll among nature. Multiple picnic areas should be perfect for family gatherings. Multiple playgrounds and a zipline area will provide hours of entertainment for guests.

Two dog parks (one for large breeds, one for small breeds) are sure to be popular. There is also an amphitheater area suitable for smaller acts up to a full orchestra. Planners have kept this area open to the possibility of expansion in the future. Organizers also plan on incorporating an area lake into the activities available, with boat rentals and catch-and-release fishing being discussed.

We eagerly anticipate the opening of this awesome facility, and look forward to helping traveling sports teams find convenient and affordable lodging for their stays.
