The Moscow School District and the City of Moscow partnered to develop the District owned property located adjacent to Joseph Street and Mountain View Road in Moscow, Idaho, into a high quality athletic field complex to serve the community. This project began in 1998 when the District and City jointly funded a master planning effort for the site which was followed by the joint construction of one of the five proposed play fields, a portion of the parking facilities, and associated street improvements.
The Moscow community lacked the fields needed to support the activities of the local baseball, soccer, football, lacrosse and others needs for youth sports activities. The community was lacking a regulation-size site and pitcher’s mound for regular practices.
The Moscow School District and City of Moscow worked in partnership to develop the District’s 22-acre property located adjacent to Joseph Street and Mountain View road in Moscow, Idaho, into a high-quality athletic field complex to serve the community’s needs. This project began in 1998 when the District and City jointly funded a master planning effort for the site which was followed by the joint construction of a portion of the proposed facility. The purpose of this project was to complete the design and construction of the playfield complex.
There were two teams developed to oversee and provide input into the final design and construction process. The Authorized Representative Committee (ARC) included representation from the City and District and the Design/Planning Team including representatives from the various partners as well as the various sporting entities in the community.
The playfield complex will provide three additional softball-youth baseball fields, one varsity baseball field and two regulation soccer fields. The softball outfield also could provide additional space for soccer play. The project includes bleachers, restrooms, a press box and parking lot with about 240 spaces.
