News Release

Community Invited to Grand Re-opening of Community Park Soccer Complex

For immediate release: May 31, 2018

Memorial Day

$2.6 Million Project Installed State-of-the-art Synthetic Fields

Residents are invited to celebrate the Grand Re-opening of the Community Park Soccer Complex following a $2.6 million investment by the City Council to renovate the complex with state-of-the-art soccer facilities for the more than 200,000 Moreno Valley residents and visiting athletes who compete at the regional venue each year.

The soccer complex renovation transformed all four fields with professional grade synthetic turf, replacing turf which has been in place for more than a decade. The new state-of-the-art turf features a cool fill rubber system to create a first class experience for competitors and spectators alike.

"The hundreds of thousands of soccer players and fans who choose Moreno Valley as their preferred venue will now be able to enjoy an enhanced athletic experience,” said Mayor Yxstian Gutierrez. “The City Council’s investment is not just in soccer fields, it is an investment in our quality of life.”

Use of the soccer complex has dramatically increased since the original synthetic turf was installed in 2008. Synthetic turf fields offer numerous advantages over natural grass, including increasing the number of days the fields can be used since muddy conditions after rain are no longer a concern.

This project achieves several priorities included in the City’s Momentum MoVal strategic plan, including creating a positive environment for the development of Moreno Valley’s future, promoting community pride, and ensuring that needed public facilities are constructed and maintained.

Please contact the Moreno Valley Parks and Community Services Department at 951.413.3280 or recreation@moval.org for additional event information.
