Turf is down in the field house, and the batting cages are coming together. Crews are finishing up an array of final details to the building preparing for its opening in November. More parking has been poured. 

Oct. 8, 2018

Crews are laying down the field turf inside the fieldhouse. Our fieldhouse will be the first field in the state of Nebraska to have this state-of-the-art turf. The turf will have Ecofill, made from recycled plastic, not granulated tires. The fill doesn't radiate as much heat, stays in place better and smells better than fields with the granulated tire fill. Above all, it plays the closest to natural grass of any turf available.

Windows are being installed on the fieldhouse. New road has been poured north of the fieldhouse and connecting to the parking lots. Crews are constructing the roof to the gymnasium portion of the community center as the rest of the building continues to take shape.

Utilizing Council feedback, the list was narrowed down to finalists with "Papillion Landing" emerging as the preferred name for the facility.
