The Rocky Mountain Sports Park was touted as the world’s biggest park with 68 sports fields, a 10,000 seat stadium and 200 acres of retail space.

Now, developers will expand the existing Diamond Valley Sports Complex. They say the infrastructure issues are preventing them from going with the original proposal.

    Good riddance to Rocky Mountain Sports Park – probably a necessary “rebranding” due to the scandal they got caught up in, but I would love to know if there is more to the story on that name change! This location and “project magnitude” looks more in line with the experience level of the stakeholders involved also. I am not a big fan of privatizing public facilities, but maybe it will work with baseball. It will be interesting to see how the Windsor residents west of HWY257 between Garden and Eastman Park, as well as the small businesses will like the potential traffic increases in that main thoroughfare if these guys are actually successful – big “IF” there. So glad they wrote that clause to regain control of the public land if they fail to serve the public’s interests – that was important (and telling!).
