Sunset Park Sports Complex
This four-acre facility is the second-most-used sports complex in the Park District. Only the Howard M. Terpenning Recreation Complex (158th and Walker Road) handles more recreation activity.
Specifically dedicated to youth baseball and softball, the Sunset Park Sports Compex opened in 1997. It is located next to THPRD's Sunset Swim Center at 13707 NW Science Park Drive. The site draws thousands of athletes and spectators annually for local, state and regional games and tournaments.
The facility includes:
- Four sand-based baseball/softball fields with dirt infields and 6-foot fences
- Concession stand
- Permanent restrooms
- Daktronics scoreboards on all four fields
All of the playing fields are illuminated with environmentally friendly Musco lights. Parking is available in the Sunset Swim Center parking lot. Additional tournament and weekend parking is located in the main Sunset High School parking lot off Cornell Road. Self-contained RVs are allowed in the high school lot for tournaments.
In 2009, the fields were reinforced with an innovative drainage system that will help eliminate long-term damage to the surface from heavy rain. This extends playability.
