New sports complex to open in Warner Robins in April

WARNER ROBINS, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – A new sports complex is set to open on North Houston Road in April.

Warner Robins mayor Randy Toms says the facility will help to bring people and businesses to the area.

“I think it is going to be life changing for our community, certainly for that area of town which needs something to boost the revitalization,” Toms said.

The facility will include an emphasis of a patriotic attitude by incorporating the red, white and blue in its color scheme. It will include baseball fields, basketball courts, volleyball courts and multi-purpose rooms.

“We’ve relied on the Houston County Board of Education to help us run our programs, but with this we can pretty much run our day to day activities,”  Parks and Recreation director Jarred Reneau said.

The new complex can hold a variety of sports competitions and events.

Marsha Buzell, director of the Warner Robins Conventions and Visitor Bureau, says this will help bring money into the city.

“It naturally expands the footprint for the city and the importance of it because, we’re right in the center of the state,” Buzzell said.
