Progress at the new Mount Pleasant Sports Complex is speeding along towards a Fall 2020 opening date!

The 145-acre property is located in the northeast corner of Business 271 and CR 1314 and boasts 45 acres of amenities including lighted soccer fields, an innovative playground and sprayground, a beautiful concession area overlooking a pond, open green space and plenty of trails for walking and jogging.

“We are very excited about the Sports Complex and thank everyone involved in bringing it to reality,” said Mayor Tracy Craig, Sr. “It is a destination facility that will raise the level of expectation of sports fields in our region.”


The city was awarded a $1 million grant by the Texas Parks and Wildlife for the project, which began in 2014 with a concept design and selection of the property. Construction began in August 2018.

In addition to offering “way cool” amenities, the sports complex features unique and varied material types including synthetic turf, engineered wood fiber, a durable splash deck, both concrete and decomposed granite trails, sports grass seeding and native grass seeding.

Stay tuned for opening details!
