Details have been released on the Rocky Mountain Sports Park, a planned sports complex in Windsor, CO that features a 10,000-person capacity facility.
At an estimated cost of $225 million, the Rocky Mountain Sports Park will offer a total of 65 fields, including 12 that are designated as multi-use. There will also be 16 baseball and softball tournament fields, spaces for high school and collegiate sports, a miracle field, and t-ball and youth fields.
The complex is also set to feature a main facility, dubbed the “Feature Stadium,” that will be able to accommodate 10,000 spectators. The venue is being planned with higher standards in mind, according to Rocky Mountain Sports Park president and director of operations Mike Billadeau, and it could accommodate a professional team down the road.

The sports park will be built on the northern edge of land that has been annexed into Windsor at Colo. 257 and Weld County Road 74, three miles north of Windsor Lake.
The stadium will be built to Major League Baseball standards, Billadeau said, and developers acknowledged that they hope to find a minor-league team to fill it.
But it will also include an indoor training facility that could be utilized year-round.
“You’ll have two complete infields, six hitting lanes, six pitching lanes and other training rooms geared towards those sports,” Billadeau said.
The development is slated for 620 acres, with the sports complex itself occupying 413 acres. The additional 207 acres could be used for commercial development. Construction could begin later this year, with the first phase of the complex expected to open in the fall of 2018. A second phase would follow in the spring of 2019. Windsor is located approximately 60 miles northeast of Denver.
