Prairie Ridge Sports Complex

Prairie Ridge Sports Complex
Ankeny is an active, sports-minded community that supports many leisure activities. In the early 90’s a group lobbied for a youth sports complex. Their concept was good but the timing was off. The trigger for the project was the need for the Little League program to vacate its existing facilities. In 1998 a bond issue was held to vote on a tax increase to build the complex. The vote was 60/40 against the tax increase. The City Council offered another financing option. The City would put up $3 million of hotel/motel tax dollars if $1.5 million could be raised privately. The Ankeny community stepped up raising the $1.5 million in nine months. Bids were let in February 2000. Construction of the $4.5 million project began in April and finished in October 2000. The project was built to provide fields for Ankeny youth in local competitive league play and to attract sports tourism to our community.
