Due to a much-needed upgrade, six baseball and softball fields and four multi-purpose fields at Land O’ Lakes Recreation Complex are closed.
The fields, at 3032 Collier Parkway, are getting brand new irrigation and sprinkler systems, replacing the original pipes that were installed when the park opened in January 1992.
The fields are located at the front of the complex on the original 40 acres on which the complex was built. The complex, which also has a gym, pool complex, tennis courts, a skate park and concession stands, added a 40-acre expansion in the back in the mid 2000s.
The fields host leagues such as Land O’ Lakes Little League and Florida Premiere FC.
The fields are tentatively set to reopen Nov. 7.
