Cricket Field Coming to Spirit Park

 A new athletic field coming soon to Spirit Park will support an emerging Allen sport: cricket.

For years, local cricket enthusiasts have found an unofficial home at Suncreek Park. However, parking limitations and disruptions from North Texas Municipal Water District made this location undesirable for players and other park visitors.

Allen negotiated funding support from North Texas Municipal Water District to relocate the cricket field to Spirit Park. These funds, combined with existing capital improvement funds for parks projects, will cover the project’s $375,000 budget.

Construction on the fields will begin later this summer with an estimated completion date of spring/summer 2021.
