COLLEGE STATION -- Veterans Park in College Station is getting a face-lift thanks to a proposal passed unanimously by the city council.

Two synthetic turf fields will be added to the complex in the hopes it'll draw more visitors than it already does.

Even though Veterans Park has nine soccer fields and five softball fields, College Station parks and recreation director David Schmitz says there is still a need for more.

"We're constantly turning away league play and tournament play."

But that won't be a problem any more since the city approved adding two all-weather turf fields.

When the two synthetic fields are added, it'll mean more playing time, bigger tournaments and an even larger economic impact on the local economy.

Schmitz says, "Our economic impact is somewhere between five and seven million dollars a year in the tournaments we currently run but we're hoping to up that closer to ten million."

Kindra Fry, with Convention and Visitors Bureau, says the new fields will be a win-win addition.

"This just takes the existing Veterans Park and all it's glory up a notch."

The four million dollar project, which also includes new field lights and additional parking, is being paid for by the hotel occupancy tax funds so it's not costing you a penny.
