During their regular meeting held on May 15, the Town of Hope Mills Board of Commissioners approved, by consensus, the initial plans for the future Hope Mills Sports Complex soon to be located at Golfview Greenway, formerly golf course property.

During the meeting, representatives from the proposal from CHA Consulting, Inc. presented the finalized plans before the Board. 

“What we're trying to do here is, we're trying to maintain two large bulk fields, two softball fields and, and one that's expandable that you can basically have a softball or baseball on it. Also, you can look at field ‘A’ we actually have a rectangular one you can actually do multipurpose in the outfield.” said a representative from CHA during the meeting. “We have batting cages we have around for a playground. There's a spine down the middle of it that basically maximizes the space to make it more of a welcoming area. And we also have regional parking. We were trying to minimize the amount of traffic going right in front of the site by having the alleys where there are we're trying to do about 50 parking spaces per field."

The Town of Hope Mills posted a full photo of the approved layout on social media the following day stating in part: 

“After much coordination with Hope Mills Parks and Recreation staff, the consulting firm presented a concept with baseball fields that will occupy approximately 27 acres which is less than 30% of the entire site.” 

According to the post future site elements of the park include:

  • Enhanced walking trail
  • Amphitheater
  • Community Center with Basketball Courts
  • Expanded Ponds
  • Nature Preserve (30% of site)
  • Storm water features
  • Community Center
  • Creek Access
  • Site Amenities to include Picnic Shelters, Benches and Picnic Tables.


According to public documents from the Town, ARPA funding for the Hope Mills Sports Complex Phase I Project was approved in the Fiscal 2021/22 budget in the amount of $1,400,000.
