The Mobile County Commission recently voted to approve the $2.4-million purchase of 61.4 acres of property adjacent to the Mobile County Soccer Complex at 3701 Halls Mill Road, according to a recent press release. The purchase, funded by District 2 Capital Improvement funds, will expand the current footprint of the complex and allow for additional amenities. District 2 County Commissioner Connie Hudson said that “future plans may include other amenities such as an indoor aquatics facility for recreational and competitive swimming, beach volleyball courts, disc golf and potentially a public/private partnership to establish a water park.” She anticipates a request for proposal to be issued for the water park once the property purchase is finalized.

Phase I of the Mobile County Soccer Complex was recently completed and includes three lighted and sodded fields, water, sewer, drainage, irrigation, parking for more than 200 vehicles and entry roads. Phase I use has included youth soccer and lacrosse, AFC Mobile National Premier League practice and Ultimate Frisbee. Phase II design is nearing completion. It is anticipated that construction bids will be requested in late summer and that construction should be underway in spring 2022. Phase 2 will include two additional parking lots, a sodded and lighted championship field, team locker rooms, restrooms, seating for approximately 1,400 people, a press box and a fifth lighted field with artificial turf. There are to be 10 soccer fields upon completion of the work.
