New Edmond softball complex nears home plate

New sod at the softball complex at Edmond 66 Park was being watered Wednesday.

City officials and members of the Edmond Adult Softball Association, which will operate the complex, will hold a grand opening in March at the Edmond 66 Park Softball Complex.

Contractors are nearly finished with the $5.2 million project, but officials want to wait until spring to give the sod a chance to establish in the outfield. They also need to have lights and a scoreboard installed and expect to go out for bids soon.

The four-field softball complex is in Edmond’s new community park on the northeast corner of Post Road and State Highway 66. The concessions and restroom will have a Route 66 theme.
