The good news keeps on coming for O’Fallon, Mo., a frequent top finisher on national lists of the best places to live. The new Missouri Rush Sports Park development will also make it one of the best places to play.
“Missouri Rush is very excited to call this wonderful location our new home,” said Missouri Rush President Mike Soots. “O’Fallon and St. Charles County are where many of our families live and now we can offer them state-of-the-art resources right here in their community.”
The first phase of the new family-friendly, sports-oriented destination, developed by Innsbrook Corporation and Cornerstone Contracting Services, held its official ribbon cutting ceremony last week.
Located at the intersection of Highway 40 and Highway DD, the 30-acre park is an all-weather sports complex with four lighted, artificial turf fields. It will host Missouri Rush's soccer and lacrosse games and will be the main facility for the club's training and practices. The park will also host league games, tournament play, Midwest Regional League games and is open for outside rentals.
In addition to the fields, which are now complete and in use, the first phase of the project will include a clubhouse with concessions, a restaurant with a rooftop patio and the home offices of Missouri Rush. Adjacent to the clubhouse will be four top-quality sand volleyball courts run by one of the area’s leading volleyball operators, Missouri Sand Volleyball.
The restaurant and rooftop patio will soon be a new location of a local favorite, Llywelyn's Pub, on which construction is slated to begin soon.
“We are incredibly excited about the potential for the Missouri Rush Sports Park to drive the development for this part of O’Fallon,” said Mayor Bill Hennessy. “From the soccer fields and the existing movie theater, to our new 55-acre nature park that is being developed nearby, to the pending retail, restaurants and office developments, we believe this area will become a multi-use destination that draws visitors from throughout the region and becomes an anchor for further development of the surrounding properties. We have long believed that these properties hold immense opportunity for the future of our city. The opening of the Missouri Rush Sports Park is the first step in turning that potential into a reality.”
The development’s concept also calls for additional businesses that cater to active, sports-centric families. A convenience store and hotel are in the works and the developer welcomes businesses that serve families on the go and are looking for a high-traffic location.
