New $30M Youth Sports Complex To Be Built In Westwego

A new 94-acre sports complex is planned to be built in West Jefferson. The project is planned to be completed in 2022 and is located on land purchased next to TPC Louisiana on Nicolle Blvd.

This $30 million youth sports complex will include batting cages, a playground, a shaded pavilion, two baseball fields and five multi-purpose fields for baseball, softball, flag football and soccer in its first two phases. Future plans will add more fields and amenities. The complex will be used for state and regional tournaments as well as a local youth sports community.

This project has great proximity to the east bank by the Huey P. Long bridge. The project is located in the Fairfield area where the TPC Louisiana golf course, NOLA Motorsports Park, the Churchill Technology and Business Park and Delgado Community College’s River City Campus are already located.

The complex will be modeled after the Sports Force Parks in Vicksburg, Mississippi and will be named after the former state Senator John Alario. The project will be designed by Duplantis Design Group, managed by Legends and Circular Consulting and a construction firm will be hired this year. The Louisiana Stadium and Exposition District (LSED) purchased the 148 acres and plans to get underway in the third quarter of 2021.

“This is meant to be an economic driver for the region,” Jefferson Parish Recreation Director Mario Bazile said. “It’s a real push to be a regional player in travel sports.”
