The next few months promise to be ones of rapid progress. Here is a panoramic photo of the work taken from the walkway into the stadium (above the bleachers). We've also included three of the renderings for what Eagle Stadium will look like when the project is completed in 2018.

The new scoreboard has been installed as part of the Eagle Stadium renovation project. The new scoreboard is now located in the far corner of the field, allowing more fans to see it.
The foundations for the bleachers were recently completed. The bleachers and turf will be delivered and installed in mid-July.

Welcome to the South Park Eagle Stadium Renovation blog. As the weather heats up, more and more changes will be taking place at the home of the Eagles. We will provide frequent updates throughout the project.
Let's recap where we've been and what took place today.
The South Park School District Board of Directors approved the Eagle Stadium renovation project in late February. Shortly after the special meeting, work began. The first noticeable changes were the removal of the bleachers, lights, press box and concession stands. There has also been a lot of site work happening in the past few weeks.
What will the finished project look like? As part of the renovation, a new stadium building will be constructed on the site of a current practice field located closest to Eagle Pride Lane. The stadium building will feature four locker rooms, a trainers’ room, coach’s offices, a storage room and public restrooms. The current home locker room at the stadium’s upper level will be converted into a concession stand and public restrooms. The existing visitor’s locker room at the lower level of the stadium will be converted into a storage space for sports teams and the marching band.
The new Eagle Stadium will feature an artificial playing surface, new stands and bleachers, a new press box, a new scoreboard and new stadium lighting. The existing walkway from the parking area at the site of the former South Park High School will be repaved. New steps will be constructed from the parking area down to the area near the current upper concession stand.
Work on the field, stands, bleachers, lights, press box, scoreboard and concession stand is scheduled to be completed in the fall of 2017. The project is scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2018.
So what is happening today? Work on the field began yesterday. And you'll see in the photo below that a lot of progress has already been made.
We hope you'll keep checking back for updates. We'll also be posting updates on our social media pages.
