The grand opening of a new indoor soccer field will take place from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Saturday at Rexland Acres Park located at Fairview Road.

A group of local kids worked for three years to make the new indoor park a reality. They petitioned the county and state for grant funding.

With the help of the Greenfield Walking group, eventually $80,000 was raised for the new facility.

Construction crews first broke ground in October of 2018. Although the field will be smaller in size than originally thought, community members will also be able to play tennis, volleyball and other sports in the facility.

The community celebration will feature music, free food, giveaways and family-oriented activities.
