Ground Breaking for the RecSports Renovation Projects

June 14th, 2010

On June 1st OSU broke ground on the much anticipated expansion projects to the Dixon Recreational facilities. These projects include building a new Outdoor Recreational Complex as well as renovating the current McAlexander Fieldhouse.

The Outdoor Recreation Complex project will take the place of the existing intramural playfield located between 26th and 30th Streets and between the Washington Way parking area and Intramural Way. In brief, the proposed scope of construction includes two synthetic turf fields with field lighting, the replacement of the existing tennis courts, new entries to the existing Tennis Pavilion structure, a central plaza area with a restroom/storage shelter, a running path, and areas for both active and passive park use. Highlights of the renovations to the McAlexander Fieldhouse are improved surfaces and equipment for turf and court sports, a second on campus rock climbing center and a skills-building course.

Together these projects will vastly improve the availability of outdoor recreational areas and create a casual park-like setting in the heart of campus for the OSU community to enjoy a variety of activities!

Construction is scheduled to be completed by the end of this summer and will be ready to welcome students this fall.
